Superintendent’s Message – Michael Healey

 

Dear Argyle Central School Community Members,

 

Welcome Back!  The Argyle Central School District and staff have spent the summer preparing for a 2017-2018 school year filled with exciting academic and extracurricular opportunities.

  

Our focus for the upcoming school year will center around supporting our students in five specific areas:

 

· Continuous improvement of student grade level/subject area performance;

· Improving student attendance;

· Supporting our students’ social, emotional, and mental health;

· Increasing our students’ involvement in extracurricular and community activities; and

· Providing opportunities for our students to enhance learning through the use of      technology.

  

Safety and Security

We have upgraded our visitor sign-in system this school year.  During the school day, and upon entering the school, all Argyle CSD parents, visitors, substitute teachers, and guests will need to report to the Main Office and receive a visitor’s pass.

 

In September, all Argyle faculty and staff will receive official school ID badges.  All faculty and staff will wear school ID badges during the school day. 

 

The safety of our students and staff continues to be the District’s number one priority.  The addition of our visitor sign-in system and staff ID badges will allow us to better monitor who is in the school building.

 

 New Faculty and Staff

We are pleased to welcome our new faculty and staff members to Argyle Central School.

 

· Laura Weston, Special Education Teacher

· Sara Lajeunesse, Special Education Teacher

· Lori McKernon, Teacher Aide

· Shannon Riley, Part-Time Teacher Aide

 

Communication

With the start of the 2017-2018 school year, the District will launch a new, updated website! Our new site will allow us to better share all the great news and activities happening here at the school!  In addition to being easy to use, our new website is ADA compliant and is fully accessible for users who rely on screen readers and other similar technologies; the site can also be translated into ten different languages with the click of your mouse! Our website address will remain the same:  www.argylecsd.org.

 

In 2015, the District created our own Twitter page as a way to keep you informed and updated on important information. This year, we are pleased to announce the official launch of the Argyle Central School District Facebook page. Our website and social media platforms are great ways to share important information, great photos of our students in action, and informative videos for parents.

 

The District has also transitioned to a new automated calling system this year. Our new SchoolMessenger service will allow us to relay important information (school closing calls, important upcoming events, etc.) through phone, email, text message, and our Facebook and Twitter page. To ensure you never miss an important message from the school, please make sure all your current information (including cell phone and email address) is on file with the Main Office.

 

The first day of school for students is Wednesday, September 6th and PreK-12 Open House is scheduled for Thursday, September 28th at 6:30pm.

 

We hope you are ready for an excellent 2017-2018 school year here at Argyle Central School!

 

Sincerely,

 

Michael Healey
