Dear Meadow Pond Families,
Welcome to MPES for the 2018-2019 school year! Our smiling students passed under the traditional balloon arch
as they entered the building for the first time this school year. The first week of school at Meadow Pond has been
a great success for all! This week, students and teachers have been busy unpacking and organizing their supplies
and learning routines.
We had our first Town Meeting yesterday morning. All our students and staff were welcomed back. We introduced
our kindergartners and other new students and new staff members, too. Then we congratulated Mrs. Melissa
Richardson and Mrs. Amy Signore on their twenty-five years of service to Katonah-Lewisboro and especially our
Meadow Pond students.
Teachers and students have been engaged in learning and are working together to form a classroom and school
community that is Kind, Respectful, Responsible and Safe. Our Be Your Best booklet was backpacked earlier this
week. Please review the Be Your Best Code of Conduct with your child and return the signed
acknowledgement form in the back of the book by Friday, September 14th.
We had our first fire drill this morning. All our students exited safely and quietly with their teachers. Throughout
the year, we conduct different drills to ensure the safety of all our students. These drills include fire drills as
well as lock-down drills, lock-out drills, shelter-in-place drills, emergency evacuation and emergency dismissal. We
conduct these drills in accordance with New York State Law under Project SAVE regulations. For emergency
dismissal drills or early closings, you will be contacted using the automated notification system. The automated
notification system will contact you based on the information you provided. If any of your contact information
should change during the course of the year, please be sure to notify the main office and update your records
through the parent portal. Additionally, please review your family plan with your children so they are aware of
what to do when we must dismiss in an emergency.
