Reminder Picture Day 3/2!
Dear Members of the Tuxedo Community, An initial part of our search process requires broad feedback from all segments of the Tuxedo community as to what qualities they believe are most critical in Tuxedo's next Superintendent. To that end we have posted a forced choice survey, listing 25 desirable qualities every community would want in their next Chief School Officer. However, you are allowed a maximum of only 10 qualities that you believe are most important for the unique needs of our Tuxedo students, staff and residents. Be sure you check the appropriate box identifying your role in Tuxedo. Read the entire survey before checking the ten most essential qualities, in your view, for our next superintendent. We have left space for any additional information you would like to share. Please be sure to complete the survey as soon as practicable since the results will be posted on our website as well as be shared with our Citizens' Advisory Committee and Board of Education to assist their questioning of semi-finalists in April and finalists in May. Thank you for participating. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScyD12MEOq3j7uBDq6ZzVVmvca_xA4X8yXpguYjyWuBPznMKQ/viewform?usp=sf_link

George F. Baker and George Grant Mason Schools are under a Water Boil Advisory by the Town of Tuxedo until further notice. This means that our water fountains have been turned off. 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.
