Dear Pixie families,

My hope is that you are all healthy and well.

Unfortunately, our community continues to see a rise in COVID-19 cases. And sadly, more and more of us have heard or know of someone that has contracted the virus. Our hearts and prayers go out to those affected.

First and foremost is the safety of our Pixie children, families and staff. Our school will therefore not open on April 2, as originally scheduled. The new goal date is April 20. I will update everyone with more detailed information by midweek.

Do not hesitate to reach out to me by email if you have any specific questions or concerns. And please, continue to be safe.

To our Pixie families,

When we took precautionary measures and initially closed Pixie on March 13, no one
could have possibly predicted the current environment. Within the last week, the
coronavirus has spread to our community raising concerns, fear and uncertainty.

We are living through an incredibly difficult and challenging time. A little over a week
has passed since Governor Cuomo signed an executive order directing New York State
schools to close. Since then, many more measures have been taken to curtail and
hopefully stop the spread of this very aggressive virus. Although we are all disappointed
that school is not in session, I am sure that we are all in agreement that what is most
important is the health, safety, and well-being of our loved ones.

The staff and I truly miss our Pixie families and are anxious to return to the normalcy of
our school routine. We have so many wonderful year-end activities and events planned
and are hoping that we can end the school year on a positive note.

Through it all, our main priority has been to keep our Pixie families and staff safe.
Therefore, Pixie will be closed until we receive a directive from the governing state
officials. The teachers will continue to communicate with you via the Remind App. We
will keep you apprised of any developments and changes. Please be safe.

A few words from Sara Vasilakos, Director…..

“As you know, there are numerous factors that contribute to a child’s school success. Although emphasis tends to be placed on academics, your child’s physical, emotional, and social well-being are of equal importance.I truly believe that a positive school experience can only be achieved if we work collaboratively in your child’s best interest. You are your child’s strongest advocate and, even at this early age, you have a powerful influence on your child’s learning as well as on their attitude toward learning. That said, the staff and I are committed to providing the best possible educational experience for your children. Please keep the lines of communication open and never hesitate to approach your child’s teacher or myself with any concerns. We are looking forward to a fantastic school year!”

Please note that all children must be completely immunized to attend our school.
