    A Message From The Superintendent ...

    June 2020


    Dear St. Mary’s School for the Deaf Stakeholders:

    As this unprecedented school year closes, I want to thank you and your children for your flexibility and patience during the past three months.   I also want to thank our teachers and staff for all they continue to do for our students and their families.  We leave no doubt we are in this together, with a “Child First” approach to Deaf Education.

    Our 2020 Summer School will be a distance learning experience.  Summer School begins on Monday, July 6th and end on Friday, August 14th.   At this time, we do not feel we can meet the requirements to reopen by July 6th.  We continue to work diligently on our reopening plan for the Fall.  Please see the link below from the New York State Department of Health that will guide our reopening.


    Thank you all for making the 2019-2020 Academic School Year the best it could have been given everything that was out of our control.  Thank you to all whom asked, “How can I help?”  The “Spirit of St. Mary’s” will guide us through these unchartered waters.  There will be better days ahead.

    Child First!


    Timothy M. Kelly
