  • Rose Ceremony

    Dear Parents and Guardians, We regret to inform you that after repeated attempts to hold the fall Rose Ceremony, we will have to postpone the event until the spring. Due to the recent COVID-19 reports, we believe that it is in the best interest and safety of both students and families to reschedule the event for a later date. Traditionally, the spring ceremony is when our first graders bid farewell to the senior class. Since we are postponing the fall ceremony, we will combine the welcoming of the first graders with the celebration of our graduating seniors. The spring ceremony is scheduled for May 20, 2021, and it is on the district calendar. We look forward to celebrating the Class of 2032 and the Class of 2021 at that time. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. Please know that your children’s safety is at the forefront of all of our decisions. Sincerely, Tracy Smith Torrance Walley High School Principal W.L. Morse Principal

  • PSAT Day Rescheduled to 10/29

    PSAT Day has been rescheduled - Due to our switch to remote learning for October 14th, PSAT day has been moved to Thursday, Oct. 29th. ALL 10th and 11th graders have the opportunity to sit for the PSAT exam. This includes Cohort A, B, and Remote learners. In order to create a safe testing environment, 9th and 12th graders will not have school on this day. Our 10th and 11th graders should report by 8:30 AM with a #2 Pencil and a Calculator. Testing rooms will be assigned by English class and posted at various building entrance points. Our 11th grade students with approved College Board testing accommodations will be directed to 104W. This College board exam will give our students exposure to the SAT exam's format, question-types, and content. The PSAT exam also serves as an opportunity for 11th grade students to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Program. PSAT results will arrive back to us and returned to students in Mid-December. Hybrid learners have been given a PSAT practice book in school. Remote learners have been provided with the following link, to prepare for the exam: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/pdf/psat-nmsqt-student-guide.pdf

  • Quarantine Brings Out Creativity in Sleepy Hollow Students

    As students in the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns worked from home this past spring, they learned to express themselves in new and different ways. Sleepy Hollow Middle School and High School students, for example, created virtual art galleries and took part in projects that taught them about photography, drawing, graphic arts and videography. These are skills that they can continue to explore.

    If anyone doubts the power of student voices for change, they need look no further than the rally held in Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown this Saturday, June 13. The event was conceptualized by SHHS junior Sandra Aderemi and quickly became a reality with the help of SHHS Principal Dr. Tracy Smith, the Sleepy Hollow High School African American Culture Club advisor Pat Bonitatibus, and other students who posted a flyer on their social media to encourage all to come.

  • SHHS Staff Parade 6/4/20

    The Sleepy Hollow High School Teacher Parade will take place this Thursday, June 4th. This is a parade for all the high school students to see their teachers before the end of the school year. The parade will start at 4pm from Sleepy Hollow High School. The route follows the main roads starting in Sleepy Hollow travelling to Briarcliff Manor then to Pocantico and finishing in Tarrytown. A copy of the route is attached. Due to the size of the parade, we are limited to the main roads. We ask that students and their families to walk to the parade route and be patient as you wait for us. Here are the rules we need you to follow to maintain everyone's health and safety: 1. Please wear a face mask or cloth face covering. 2. Please honor the 6 feet social distancing requirements; you cannot gather with friends and other families as much as you miss them and want to see them. You may gather with members of your own family and with individuals with whom you have been isolating. 3. Please stay out of the road; stay on the sidewalk or near the side of the road if there is no sidewalk. Do not approach any cars. This is for everyone's safety. Feel free to wave, bring a sign, yell 'hello.' We need to keep the same social distance between the members of the parade and those watching. 4. Once the parade passes your area, please return home. We must respect the current rules and avoid gathering in public places. The administrators, teachers, and staff can't wait to see our students. We will see you on Thursday.
