Irvington residents can now use social media to get updates on their schools in their Facebook feeds. The Irvington School District launched its Facebook page on Nov. 8 as another means to communicate with parents and community members.
“The board of education and district administration are dedicated to highly effective communication with the entire community,” said Irvington Superintendent Dr. Kristopher Harrison.
“Through the use of a variety of communication mediums, we hope to keep the community well informed of critical developments, provide updates on important initiatives, and to share interesting news about our schools. Through this effort, we hope to continue to build powerful relationships that can be mutually beneficial.”
Irvington is the second Rivertowns school district to launch a Facebook page. Dobbs Ferry started their page in August, while the Hastings-on-Hudson School District does not have an official Facebook page.
Irvington Schools is also re-formatting its weekly newsletter “This Week in Irvington Schools," which gets emailed on Saturday mornings. Email Elaine.Cardea@irvingtonschools.org if you would like to receive the newsletter.
