Superintendent's Message

Superintendent Stephen Beovich

 Mount Pleasant Cottage School Community,

 I must start by thanking all of you for your hard work and support throughout last year and throughout our extended school year program. Without your input and hard work, we would not have been as successful in mitigating Covid-19   inside the district and getting all of our students back into the classroom five days a week.

 As we prepare for the 2021-2022 school year, I am excited to return to a more traditional instructional model and look forward to our students making great strides this year. In order to streamline our efforts, we will be focusing on four   goals throughout the district:

  • Increase the academic achievement of all students through creating alignment between the written, taught, and assessed curriculum.
  • Improve and grow the district alternative and vocational programs so that all students will be provided expanded opportunities and multiple pathways to achieve success.
  • Continue to create a safe and positive school environment where students can experience social and emotional growth through opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.
  • Provide additional services to students to facilitate recovery from learning loss and address the psychological impact of the Covid-19 pandemic

Unfortunately, as the Delta variant continues to cause an increase in the infection rate throughout the state, a return to normalcy is not yet possible and we must continue the health and safety protocols during the last school year and the summer, including:

  • Face coverings will be mandated for all students and employees unless medically unable or a student has the inability to wear a mask listed as an IEP accommodation.
  • Student desks will continue to be stationed three feet apart and social distancing will be required whenever possible.
  • All students and staff will need to pass a temperature check and health screening daily before entering the building.
  • There will be multiple points of entry for students.
  • A cohort model will be used whenever possible; however, cohorts will change classrooms throughout the day.

If you would like to read our full up to date reopening plan it could be found at: MPCS UFSD Reopening Plan. Please keep in mind that this continues to be a living document and updates will be made as the conditions of the pandemic change. Please feel free to contact me directly at or 914-769-0456 ext.1201 with any questions or concerns.

Mount Pleasant Cottage School UFSD - School Reopening Plan

PLEASE NOTE:  This Plan will be updated regularly and may be revised at any time to best support the public health and educational needs of the Mount Pleasant Cottage School District community.  Additionally, the district recognizes the many challenges associated with creating a facility reopening plan during a pandemic.  This plan is offered as a possibility should the community health situation allow for a safe reopening of facilities.  Finally, as of August 3, 2020, the Mount Pleasant Cottage School District does not have the capability to test individuals for COVID-19.  The district is exploring possibilities, however, obtaining on-site, rapid result testing remains a challenge.
