    Celebrate this school year with a virtual yearbook signing.

    Dear Class of 2020, 

    We know how important the tradition of yearbook signing is.  While we anticipated the time being spent outdoors at the BBQ, circumstances have dictated otherwise. Nonetheless, our yearbook company, Walsworth, has partnered with Kudoboard™ to make virtual yearbook signing possible!
    Kudoboard lets you make online boards that your friends can sign with messages, photos, and gifs. You just text, email or share your link with your friends. When you’re done, you can save your board as a hi-res JPEG to keep digitally or print and place inside your yearbook. 
    We all know this doesn’t replace signing yearbook in person outside on the South Lawn, but we hope you check out this opportunity. Please share this message and links with January graduates. We want as many seniors as possible to learn about this opportunity. Remember, YOU manage who signs your board and the messages displayed. This is an opportunity to show your friends how much you care and appreciate them. Write something MEANINGFUL. Inappropriate messages, images, or bullying of any sort will NOT be tolerated. Make this opportunity a positive one.
    Check out the attached How-To PDF and head over to kudoboard.com/walsworth to get started today. Make sure to enter promo code Walsworth2020 for special pricing.

    Let us know if you have any questions!

  • Incident on 11/21/2019

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Earlier today, we received a mistaken report concerning a potential threat. The school was placed on lockdown. NYPD was on scene and confirmed there is no threat. The lockdown was lifted and classes resumed as normal.

    Our students and their safety is our top priority, and I thank our staff for their quick response.

    Parent-Teacher Conferences will take place this evening at 6:30 PM, as regularly scheduled.

Distance Learning Updates

REVISED TERM 4 2019-2020 CALENDAR -  term4 calendar.pdf 

April 5, 2020 

Dear Students & Families:

A few new notes:


(1) Term 4 starts Monday April 6th.

The DOE has decided that Spring Break is cancelled so we will have remote learning all next week including next Thursday and Friday (April 9th & 10th).
Teachers have been asked to use Thursday & Friday as "review" and "makeup days." In the email that you receive for Thursday's attendance and again for Friday's attendance, you will be given the option to inform us if you are observing a religious holiday on either or both days.

(2) The comments

that many of you are inputting each day in your remote attendance email are very helpful--please keep them coming…except for the ones that mention how old I am. Save those for when I see you.

(3) In response to your comments:

To make your remote workload more manageable, certain classes will not post new assignments on certain days from April 13th to May 1st. The teacher will remain available for questions and you can work on previously assigned activities:

Catch-Up Days: No New Lessons/ No New Assignments:

Each Week On:

No New Lessons or New Assignments in:


Math; Computers; CFM; Health; PE


Art; World Languages; Music


Social Studies (including Humanities)


English; ENL


Science; Sports Medicine

(4) In response to your comments:

Many students are asking me about the Regents. Some are asking me for the answers to the Regents…nice try…

Questions include: Will the Regents be administered this June? Or delayed until July or August? Or waived for all kids scheduled to graduate? Or waived for all students scheduled to take a Regents in June?

Answer: The Board of Regents is discussing these possibilities this week. You, as a student in a "good" high school, have an opinion that matters. If you can, respectfully, coherently, and grammatically, state your opinion to the Regents, I would urge you to consider reaching out to the Regents themselves as they make their plan. Do not be crass; don't use slang; and remember that you are trying to be convincing- not whiny or whingey-if you do decide to contact them. This is not the time to complain about things other than the Regents' Exams.

(5) If you or a friend has a problem with internet connection or lacks a laptop--email your guidance counselor. Make sure to provide your parent's cell phone and your current street address.

Stay safe!

Notice Concerning Regents and LOTE Exams

April 9, 2020

Dear Students & Families,

New York State decided not to offer Regents Examinations in June, 2020. Instead, it will offer exemptions in certain situations. An exemption means that you do not need to take the specific Regents Exam in June, 2020 or in the future. An exemption will appear on a transcript without a score.

Here are the basics of what this policy means for you:

  1. If you are in a course that was leading to a Regents or LOTE Exam in June and you pass the course, you are exempted from taking that course's Exam.
    -For Science course with lab requirements, this applies even if you did not accumulate the required labs.
    -For LOTE (Languages Other Than English) Exams, this applies if you have earned 3 credits or more in the LOTE Language by the end of June, 2020.
  2. If you are in a course that was leading to a Regents or LOTE Exam in June and you fail the course but make up the failure in summer, then you are exempted from taking that course's Exam.
    -For Science course with lab requirements, this applies even if you did not accumulate the required labs.
    -For LOTE (Languages Other Than English) Exams, this applies if you have earned 3 credits or more in the LOTE Language by the end of June, 2020.

The New York State Department of Education has not announced plans for any Regents Exams in August.
Be careful of this because there is no budget or plan for summer school as of yet.

  1. If you previously passed a course that lead to a Regents or LOTE Exam, but failed the Regents and were going to retake the Exam in June, 2020, you are exempted from taking that Exam.
    -For Science course with lab requirements, this applies even if you did not accumulate the required labs.
    -For LOTE (Languages Other Than English) Exams, this applies if you have earned 3 credits or more in the LOTE Language by the end of June, 2020.
  2. If you are scheduled to graduate in June, 2020 and have earned all the required course credits, you are exempted from taking any Regents or LOTE Exam that might have been required for you to graduate.
    --For Science course with lab requirements, this applies even if you did not accumulate the required labs.
    -For LOTE (Languages Other Than English) Exams, this applies if you have earned 3 credits or more in the LOTE Language by the end of June, 2020. (4+1)
  3. If you were on track for an Advanced Regents diploma and are now exempted from taking Regents or LOTE Exam that you needed for this, you will be awarded the Advanced Regents Diploma.
  4. If the average of the highest scores for each Regents you have taken is 90% or higher, you will receive a "with Honors" designation. Exempted Regents will not count in the average of your Regents scores.
  5. If you have an IEP and were going to use the Compensatory Scoring Option to satisfy graduation requirements, an Exam that is exempted cannot be used for this.
  6. Students enrolled in a NYSED approved CTE program can be exempted from three-part technical assessments if they earned the course credit and had intended to take the exam in 2019-2020.

We will share further information as it becomes available.
