亲爱的家长们,

Hope our HXGNY families are all safe and sound, and weathered Hurricane Sandy OK. For families still without power or water, please email  the school PTA, and we’ll try to match you up with school families with power and in a position to help out. Families that can help (water, shower, refrigerator space, charging, internet access, etc.), please email school PTA at HXGNYPTA@googlegroups.com.

This Sunday, HXGNY at White Plains High School will be open. As per WPHS, one gym will be used as shelter for Hurricane Sandy victims. So only one gym will be available for HXGNY use. WPHS also requests that we do not use the field this Sunday.

Please Note: Daytime Saving Ends this Sunday. Please remember to set your clock backward by one hour.
