A Message from Tenafly Public Schools
Dear TPS Community -
Again, we hope that the impacts to each of you from Hurricane Ida were minimal. For everyone affected by the storm, we understand and want your first priority to be your family, safety, and home.
We do however want to share some information related to activity occurring at several of our schools over the next few days in response to flood damage sustained by last night's hurricane at Smith and Mackay Schools. Professional consultants assessed the damage to classrooms, offices and hallways, and other school areas today and immediate plans are in place to remediate the damage so that we can welcome students and staff back safely on September 9th. Activity will be visible at both Smith and Mackay Elementary Schools starting early tomorrow, Friday, September 3rd as a host of internal staff and contracted professionals work on both schools to get them ready for next week.
Our staff at Smith and Mackay Elementary Schools has been notified and invited to work from other schools today and tomorrow as they prepare, meet, and collaborate.
For any other previously scheduled meetings and events at the schools, separate communications will be sent if and as necessary from the school, principal, and/or the district. Our 12-month staff should report to work as scheduled.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing everyone on September 9th when we welcome all of our students back in person. Please know that we are thinking of all of you and hoping that you are all safe and well.
