    • Please feel free to email me at: krichmond@yonkerspublicschools.org or call the school at 914-376-8435 or at 914-316-0395 (personal cell phone) and I will always get back to you before the end of the school day.

    User Name:  six digit ID#@yonkerspublicschools.org
    Password:  students should use the same password we use to login to the school computers, which is Richmond1!
    If this password does not work, please have them use what they use on our school computers.  Once they log into Clever, then their password is their birthday digits.
    Please make sure that your child has writing materials handy (a notebook, or paper, pencil), crayons, and their Take-Home-Folder at home daily.  One side of the folder says, "Stay-at-home," and the other side of the folder says, "Bring back to school."  Once the class work is graded and reviewed, I will send it home with your child and you can take it out of the folder.  If the assignment is on the bring-back-to- school side, then it MUST be returned to school the next day.  Please also remove all notices and flyers from the folder so that the folder does not get too heavy for your child.
    I look forward to working with all of you this school year!  Thank you for all the school supplies that you sent in for your children and especially for all the extra supplies for the class that you so generously shared with me and the children.  It is so greatly appreciated.
