NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- We have named our son after my grandfather, Joseph Just, who passed away this year in November, at the age of 97. He was known to most people as Yossel, and that’s what we as his grandchildren called him too. When anyone asked why we referred to Yossel by his first name, we just explained that “Zaydie” or “Grandpa” never seemed to fit, and that Yossel always bristled at those titles anyway, asking us, “Do I look like a Zaydie?!” which is such a signature Yossel line because it captures his pride, his youthfulness, and his strength.

The budget proposal includes a $3,564,473 increase, or 1.42%, over the previous year’s budget. It has a 1.11% tax levy increase, which means the district meets the state’s required tax levy cap. Therefore, the district needs a simple majority of voters to approve the budget on May 17.

NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- In a letter to parents of students at George M. Davis Elementary School, Principal Michael Galland offered reassurance to parents, claiming that the elevated level of lead found in a water sample taken from one drinking fountain on March 29, 2016 was not that bad by comparing the result with the Flint Water Crisis in Michigan.
