2020-21 Welcome LetterDear Fox Meadow Families:
I hope you’re having a great summer! This letter provides you with information to help navigate the beginning of the school year. Given the health uncertainties, I will update this letter when there is new information to share.
In the meantime, please check out the Scarsdale Schools' Restart Plan Website to get an understanding of the planning process, timeline, and scenarios being considered for the 2020- 2021 school year.
Please make sure you receive our PTA emails. If you are a current member of the Fox Meadow PTA and are not receiving PTA e-mails, please fill out this form. New members will be entered into our database when you join the PTA.
2020-2021 PTA Membership: Registration will run from August 25, 2020 to September 11, 2020. Registration will be online, and the link to register will be on the PTA website and emailed to FM families on August 25, 2020. You must be a PTA member to register for After School Clubs, receive PTA e-mails, and have access to the Fox Meadow Student Directory.
School Supplies: While the PTA school supply sale through the First Day School Supplies has ended, your student should still be prepared on their first day of school. Please check out the grade specific school supply lists here.
PTA After School Clubs: More to come on this as we better understand what the back to school plan looks like. For now, all Scarsdale elementary schools are delaying the start of after school clubs until at least November 2020.
PTA Spirit Wear: PTA spirit wear will be sold online in the Fall. We are excited about our new selection of spirit wear and look forward to sharing it with you in the Fall.
Fox Meadow Family Picnic: The picnic is scheduled for Monday, September 14th at 5pm on the Fox Meadow Field. More to come on this.
