End of Year Reminders
Dear IEYMS Families,
We hope that you are well and looking forward to enjoying the beautiful summer weather. As we wrap up the 2020-2021 school year, we would like for virtual students to return all IEYMS textbooks, calculators, library books and other school issued materials on Friday, June 18. Please keep the district issued chrome book through the summer and into the next school year. We ask that all virtual students kindly return supplies between the hours of 11:00 and 3:00. Students taking the Algebra regents will keep their school issued calculator until after the regents exam (if they received one). Drop off bins will be located outside of the Centre Avenue entrance. Students will not enter the building. If your child has Mr. Thompson for instrumental class or Dr. Fung for strings class, they have made arrangements for virtual students to return their instruments on June 14/15 between the hours of 3:00-4:00 pm. Students in these classes should check with their teachers for the final details. In person students will return their school issued supplies during in school hours.
As a reminder, the last full day of school is June 16. Final exams begin on June 17. Virtual students will remain virtual to complete their exams. In person students will report to school no earlier than 8:30 and before 8:40. Exams will begin at 8:45. Students have until 10:45 to complete their final exams. Dismissal will be at 10:45. Students who require additional time due to IEP or 504 mandates, will receive additional time if needed. If you normally pick your child up from school, please make the appropriate arrangements as there are no after school activities during finals week. Students should bring their chrome books to take final exams.
IMPORTANT CHANGE: The Algebra regents and Living Environment regents are only offered in person. All students who registered to take the Algebra regents and Living Environment regents must report to school by 8:15 on the day of the exam. Students will be admitted into their testing locations at 8:15am. Both exams will be given at IEYMS and not the high school as originally communicated. IEYMS students taking these two state regents exams should report to IEYMS.
Students who have Mrs. Roper, Mrs. Bejar, and Mrs. Storino (Life Skills and ABA classes) will continue to report to school until June 25. June 21-June 25 school hours will be 8:30-12:00 (half-days). The morning bus will come at its regular time. Please be sure that someone is home to accept your child once they arrive home in the afternoon. The bus will depart IEYMS at 12:00.
Please contact us should you have additional questions.
Thank you for your continued support and we are so looking forward to September 2021.

Welcome Families to Isaac E. Young Middle School.
It is with great excitement that we await the first day of school. The start of a new year provides us with the opportunity to meet some amazingly talented young people. This year has certainly tested our fortitude and patience. I hope that the summer months provided you with the chance to recharge and enjoy some of the things you love to do. Despite the continued challenges that may lie ahead of us, we take the role of educating your children very serious and are committed to providing the best education possible regardless of the model. To achieve that goal, it is important that we work in partnership. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have questions or concerns.

New Rochelle schools require that all families complete a student health screening questionnaire for all students whether in virtual or hybrid school. We ask that all families complete the screener once a week. Having everyone complete the screener, regardless if learning from home or school, will allow us to respond immediately to families in need of assistance and to conduct contact tracing initiatives in partnership with the Westchester County Health Department. We ask that families complete the survey in a timely manner as outlined below. The survey should be completed by a parent or adult guardian. We are relying on our families to report accurate information. If you do not complete the survey, a member of our school health team will contact you to provide assistance.
Cohort A (for hybrid model students in school on Monday and Tuesdays)
Cohort B (hybrid model students in school on Thursday and Friday)
Virtual Learning Model Families (for students that are opting for a full remote option)

At Isaac, we want and need your children to be in school everyday. The impact of missing school, even virtual, can be detrimental to a child's outcomes. Across the country, more than 8 million students are missing so many days of school that they are at risk for school failure. "Chronic absence — missing 10 percent or more of school days due to absence for reasons that are excused or unexcused can translate into third-graders unable to master reading, sixth-graders failing subjects and ninth-graders dropping out of high school" (Attendance Works, 2019).
We all want the best for our children. But sometimes, life happens. Children will get sick, there will be family emergencies, and children will most certainly have doctor's and dental appointments. We also understand, that sometimes these events are beyond our control. We ask that whenever possible, family vacations and travel be scheduled during the summer and school vacation times. We ask that your child return to school with a note should they miss school due to an excused reason such as sickness, family emergency, inclement weather, or medical appointments. In the event that your child will miss a few classes or part of the day due to early dismissal, for medical appointments or an excusable reason, please contact the attendance office at 914-576-4362. You may also email us at email@example.com. Please upload any documentation that you may have regarding your child’s absence from school. We recommend that you also notify the teacher. In the event of online/virtual school, please follow the same procedure. Contact the attendance office or email us at the contact information provided.
SCHOOL ATTENDANCE MATTERS!
Middle school is an exciting yet challenging time for students, their parents, and teachers. According to the American School Counselor Association, during this transition from childhood to adolescence, middle school students are characterized by a need to explore a variety of interests, connecting their learning in the classroom to its practical application in life and work; high levels of activity coupled with frequent fatigue due to rapid growth. During the middle years, adolescents are searching for their own identity as they begin to grow more mature. At Isaac E. Young, the school counselors support students and families in the areas of academics, career and college readiness, behavior, and social-emotional development. School counselors are here as a resource for students. Please contact the school counseling office at 914-576-4367 should you need assistance
School Counselors: Mrs. Gabr, Mrs. Rhett, Mrs. Rodriguez, and Mrs. Smith. Mrs. Smith is currently on leave. Ms. Greene is replacing Mrs. Smith.
