    Good Afternoon 7th Grade Parents/Guardians,

    I have been made aware that there has been an issue with today's field trip.  All of our students are safe, but they were not able to complete the entire itinerary planned for today.  We are in the process of gathering all the pertinent facts about this situation.  I will send out an update as soon as I have had a chance to gather all the information from the staff that coordinated and chaperoned today's trip.

  • An important letter to parents and guardians regarding the popular Netflix series "13 Reasons Why" has been sent by the Superintendent...

    The letter, dated April 24th, 2017, is accompanied by a document from the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) that contains information for parents and guardians to read and take into consideration. Our District recognizes that schools have "an important role in preventing youth suicide, and being aware of potential risk factors in students' lives is vital to this responsibility."   Feel free to contact Dr. Montesano's office should you need more information or support.

    Thank you for your attention to this very important matter. The Dr. Montesano's letter and the NASP document are attached, below.


Welcome to Nyack Middle School Guidance and School Counseling Department

Ms.Longing joined the Nyack school district in August, as the Director of Guidance.  Middle school counselors assist students with academic, personal, social, and vocational growth. We act as advocates and assist students with major life transitions. We are also liaisons to parents and our community by providing communication, information and insights about school life. Our department is comprised of three counselors who are assigned to students by grade and work with that class of students for their three-year stay at our school.
We are very fortunate to have a school psychologist and social worker, who enhance our support staff. We also work closely with our administrative team. Each member of our department brings a unique repertoire of skills, tools and experience to help our students transition from elementary school, mature, grow, learn, and transition to our high school. We hope to make that journey an enjoyable and successful one for our students.
