Update on He'atid Teachers and Buses

Looks like He'atid hired some teachers after all!

Shabbat Shalom!

Dear Parents,

We are excited to inform you that we held our first professional development session for Yeshivat He'Atid teachers this past Monday evening.  Part of the training also included Rebecca Tomasini, from the Alvo Institute, to begin instruction on our blended learning model.  We believe we have put together an amazing faculty consisting of experienced, devoted and enthusiastic teachers who understand differentiated instruction and 21st century learning.  Our teachers believe in Yeshivat He'Atid's mission to transform Jewish education and our commitment to being a cost effective institution. 
We are well on our way to a fantastic school year this September!  You can view pictures from the evening by clicking the link below.

Separately, we wanted to allay some of the concerns shared by Teaneck parents regarding busing.  We are in close contact with Teaneck Public Schools.  Currently, our bus route is still out to bid.  The process is taking additional time because we are a completely new route.  We have been told by Teaneck that they expect to hear back from the bus company within the next month. Please be assured, if the bus route is not picked up, Teaneck residents will be entitled to compensation from the town which can then be used towards private bus service. We will share additional information as soon as we receive it.

Please feel free to contact either one of us with any questions or concerns you may have.

Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Netanel Gralla, Head of School
