Dear Students and Families of Pleasantville School District,

I hope this letter finds you well, even during this uncertain time.  We certainly are experiencing some unprecedented events.  I want to thank everyone in advance for your support, patience, flexibility, and understanding. 

This letter shall notify all of our families that the Pleasantville Board of Education approved my recommendation for the District to implement remote/virtual learning for all of our students for the first marking period of the 2020-21 school year.  More detailed information on the specifics about the implementation of the remote/virtual learning will come from your student’s principal in the very near future.

The first full day of school for students will be September 8, 2020.  Attached to this letter is a copy of the revised school calendar for the 2020-21 school year.  Also, attached is a copy of each school’s daily schedule.

Please be assured that we have looked at all of the options for our students, and we sincerely believe that providing remote/virtual learning for our first marking period is in the best interest of all students and staff, and will fulfill our top priorities of maintaining academic excellence and safety for everyone. 

If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my assistant, Ms. Bishop, at extension 2507, to set up a time to speak.

Stay strong. 

Be Safe and Be Well,


Dr. Natakie Chestnut-Lee
