  • Equity Task Force Information

    May 18, 2022

    Dear Pearl River Community,

    The Pearl River School District is committed to providing school environments that recognize and celebrate diversity, are safe, inclusive, and equitable for all of our students. As such, it is incumbent upon us to begin and pursue a conversation that explores the diversity, inclusivity, and equity in our schools. 

    On April 12, 2022, the Board of Education adopted Policy 0105- Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity in Education- which calls for the establishment of an Equity Task Force that will take on the challenge of ensuring that we provide a school environment that supports all students and provides equity in opportunity. We are committed to following a comprehensive process that will seek to identify areas of strength, recognize where improvements can be made, determine opportunities for growth, and develop a plan that will ensure we achieve equity for all. The Equity Task Force will begin with a focus on several key areas:

    • Student Support
    • Curriculum Materials
    • Professional Development and Staff Support
    • Community Education
    • Athletics and Extracurricular Activities

    The policy states that faculty and employees will be selected by their collective bargaining associations, parents of current students will be  selected by the parent teacher associations(s), and students will be selected by the building administration and Student Government. Additional Pearl River School District community members, current students, parents, faculty, and staff who wish to participate on the Task Force can do so by completing a Task Force Application by May 27th.  Applications will be reviewed by the district administration and selected individuals will be invited to join. 

    As the task force moves forward with their work, we will provide regular communication to all stakeholders. We thank the Task Force in advance for their service to our schools and to the broader Pearl River community.

    To apply, please click on the following link: Equity Task Force Application

    Sincerely, 

    Marco F. Pochintesta, Ed.D.

  • 5-24-22 Superintendent's Letter re Supporting Children After a Tragedy

    May 24, 2022

    Dear Pearl River School Community:

    While the nation is still mourning the loss of life from the massacre in Buffalo, the news of a tragic mass shooting incident – now at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas – has no doubt reached you and comes as another terrible blow. In this time of great sorrow, our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with those who now endure immeasurable sadness. I want to convey to you every measure of assurance that I can in the aftermath of this incident. Our school and district administrators are prepared to respond with heightened awareness and as always, we maintain an open line of communication with our local law enforcement officials.  While there are no known threats to any school or district in our area, an increased police presence around local schools is anticipated.  

    In the days ahead, our district-wide safety team will engage in the task of reviewing our own safety measures – evaluating and assessing our plans in light of this recent event.  Our counseling staff is prepared to respond to those children who may need assistance in coping with this awful news while at school. 

    To assist you with your role as parents and guardians in dealing with this situation at home, please review the following guidance from National Association of School Psychologists:

    1. Focus on your children over the week following the tragedy. Tell them you love them and everything will be okay. Try to help them understand what has happened, keeping in mind their developmental level.
    2. Make time to talk with your children. Remember if you do not talk to your children about this incident someone else will. Take some time and determine what you wish to say.
    1. Stay close to your children. Your physical presence will reassure them and give you the opportunity to monitor their reaction. Many children will want actual physical contact. Give plenty of hugs. Let them sit close to you, and make sure to take extra time at bedtime to cuddle and to reassure them that they are loved and safe.
    1. Limit your child’s social media interactions and exposure to television coverage of this event. If they must watch, watch with them for a brief time; then turn the set off. Don’t sit mesmerized rewatching the same events over and over again. 
    1. Maintain a “normal” routine. To the extent possible stick to your family’s normal routine for dinner, homework, chores, bedtime, etc., but don’t be inflexible. Children may have a hard time concentrating on schoolwork or falling asleep at night.
    1. Spend extra time reading or playing quiet games with your children before bed. These activities are calming, foster a sense of closeness and security and reinforce a sense of normalcy. Spend more time tucking them in. Let them sleep with a light on if they ask for it.
    2. Safeguard your children’s physical health. Stress can take a physical toll on children as well as adults. Make sure your children get appropriate sleep, exercise and nutrition.


    Please contact your child’s principal, or school counselor if he/she is experiencing any difficulty, or if you need support in addressing this sensitive matter.  

    Sincerely,

    Marco F. Pochintesta, Ed. D.
