It is the mission of the Eastchester Public Schools to provide a quality education in a safe, stable, and secure environment that fosters mutual respect, promotes the uniqueness of the individual, provides opportunities for student successes, and guides all students intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially.
Board Goal for 2021 - 2022
To ensure that Eastchester Schools return to operation as closely to pre-Covid conditions as safely, and as quickly as possible.
As such we intend to:
- Open schools in person on a 5 day per week schedule, without options for remote or hybrid type instruction.
- Have Transportation, athletics, and after school clubs and activities offered under ‘as close to normal’ conditions as they have in the past, prior to Covid restrictions.
That said, we recognize that Guidance, Recommendations and Mandates by various federal, state, and local governmental agencies are ever changing, and will continue to evolve as conditions in the general population on national, state, and local levels change.
And, while we recognize the difference between Guidelines, Recommendations, and Mandates, we intend to weigh all information available, with the overriding goal of minimizing the possibilities of quarantines for students and staff.
