  • Main Entrance Traffic updates: I would like to thank everyone for reaching out to share concerns over the traffic congestion in the main entrance during arrival and dismissal.  Our Safety Team has studied the current traffic flow and have made recommendations that would greatly improve the safety and wellbeing of your child(ren).   These recommendations include the addition of speed limit signage (5 mph) and the creation of a distinct Drop-off lane with the addition of bollards (barriers) to create a clear line of traffic.  In the future, we are looking to add a speed table/speed bump to slow traffic at the crosswalk.  Thank you in advance for your patience as we complete this work to further ensure the safety of your child(ren).  We are asking that you do not park or get out of your cars in the Drop-off lane, please park in the front parking lot.




    Dear Parents and Guardians:

    Welcome to Harry F. Abate Elementary School!

    I am hoping this note finds you and your family members well and ready to transition safely back to the 2021-2022 school year in our Intermediate Sister School Grades 3-6.

    On behalf of the Harry F. Abate faculty and staff members, I would like to thank you for your continued patience as we navigate returning from this Pandemic to a full, robust, academic school year. The administrative team, custodial, office and teaching staff members have been working very hard this summer to prepare for the safe arrival of your child(ren).

    As Principal, my primary goal will be to create and maintain a safe and orderly environment for every student and faculty member as they offer quality instruction to your child(ren) in a secure and nurturing learning environment. 

    Every month you will receive a school newsletter that will provide an abundance of useful and timely information.  Please read this newsletter closely so that you will be aware of upcoming dates, events, program updates due to the Pandemic as needed and important information to help your child be successful in school. 

    I am very excited to begin this school year with you and your child(ren) at Harry F. Abate Elementary School.


    Mrs. Lynne Tompkins, Principal
