  • NOTE TO COMMUNITY MEMBERS RE: SHIFT IN 2017-18 SCHOOL TAX RATES BETWEEN ORANGETOWN & CLARKSTOWN...

    Please read the August 2017 Letter from Superintendent Montesano to make you aware of a shift in 2017-18 school tax rates between the two towns that comprise the Nyack School District, Orangetown and Clarkstown.  

    This letter contains direct links that provide additional information from New York State regarding equalization rates and real property tax services.

    The accompanying Q&A to Nyack School District 2017-18 Tax Rates was created to assist in understanding guidelines that the District must adhere to when setting annual tax rates.  

    Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Donation Station

This project is aimed at matching specific needs anonymously.

The way it works is this: when the Family Resource Center hears about a child or family needing anything, it will send out an email to all parents who have volunteered to be on this list. Whoever has the needed item, will hit “reply all” and let everyone know that they’ve got it covered and bring in the item to the Center.

Please feel free to contact the Center if you either need donations or if you would like to be on the list. Please email me at sjfalcomer@nyackschools.org

Estación de Donación
El objeto de este proyecto es para ayudar las familias con necesidades específicas - de una forma anónima.

La forma en que funciona es así: cuando el centro de recursos de la familia oye acerca de un niño o una familia que necesitan de algo, se envía un mensaje de correo electrónico a todos los padres que han ofrecido estar en la lista. Quien tiene el elemento necesario, golpea "responder a todos" y así todos saben que estar solucionado.

No dude en ponerse en contacto con el centro si usted necesita donaciones o  si le gustaría estar en la lista por favor, enviarme un correo electrónico a sjfalcomer@nyackschools.org
