Dear BF Families, 
We have so many diverse cultures and backgrounds here at Ben Franklin. We want to celebrate them by creating a cookbook of our BF Family’s favorite traditional/cultural dishes. Many families have recipes that have been passed down for generations. Some dishes are prepared to celebrate special holidays. You have a special opportunity to share a recipe to be added to our cookbook!

Lakeland Families,

As you may be aware, the New York State Department of Health (NYDOH), provided updated guidance on international and domestic 
 and in-person instruction over this past weekend. Over the next 48 hours, we will be working with the Westchester County Department of Health (WDOH), our district physician, and District Reentry Team (DRT) to review this guidance and ensure that any necessary changes are implemented effectively and communicated to families, faculty, and staff.  

As we have previously shared, the District, in partnership with the Westchester Department of Health, will be providing a COVID rapid testing clinic to any students or staff who wish to receive a test. Our next testing date is April 14th, as of the release of this letter, there are still testing appointments available. If you would like to make an appointment for your child (or yourself if you are a staff member). Please follow this 
COVID Testing Link to make an appointment.Please arrive 5 to 10 minutes early to complete your sign-in process. You can fill out the consent form in order to speed along the process.

We are excited to offer a second in a series of webinars highlighting student mental health presented by Dr. Rappleyea; this one entitled 
Mental Health, Covid-19 and the Impact on Children With Special Needs. Will be presented on Wednesday April 14, 2021 at 7 PM via the link shared above. You can review the recording of the first event here: Youth Mental Health During the Pandemic.


Have a good evening.

Brendan Lyons, Ed.D.
