Until the advisory has been lifted, please be advised that there will be no access to the water fountains in either building but bottled water is available. It is recommended that parents/guardians have their child bring drinking water with him/her to school until the advisory has been lifted. It remains safe for students to wash their hands and our lunch program is unaffected by this advisory.

Valentine’s Wishes & Thank You to Community Services: This past week the George F. Baker High School Student Council delivered Valentine’s Day wishes and thanks to several community organizations that have remained open and active during Covid. The students thought it was important to recognize and thank the people who have been working tirelessly throughout the pandemic. The organizations included the Tuxedo Post Office, the Tuxedo Police & Fire Departments, Good Samaritan Hospital, the Sloatsburg Food Pantry, and the Tuxedo Ambulance Corps. The students also maintained their outreach with the Promenade. In November the student council sent Thanksgiving Day cards to the residents and in December they sent a Winter Holidays video. For Valentine’s Day, the students made digital cards that will be delivered to the Promenade electronically.
Donations of hand sanitizer, sanitary wipes and school supplies from the residents of our neighboring community of Monroe were collected by Staples in Central Valley and then given to the Tuxedo Union Free School District on Thursday, February 11th. These supplies will be distributed to help aid families in need throughout our district. A special thank you goes out to Jonathan Brinn, General Manager of Staples in Central Valley and to all the residents of Monroe!

Some of our National Junior Honor Society students, in conjunction with The Town of Tuxedo's volunteer P.O.R.E. organization (Parks, Outdoor, Recreation and Entertainment) earned some community service hours. A big shout out to our local bird expert, Tom Fuller, who educated the students on blue birds, their scarcity and the creation of bird boxes to help them mate and lay eggs. He also gave them some valuable instruction on the use of several different power tools. Four of these boxes will be installed at the new pollination station at the north end of town (near the original Study of Insects station). The remaining 8 will be placed at local hiking trail heads, fields and other places to be determined at our next PORE meeting.
