  • 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:

    On behalf of the Harry F. Abate faculty and staff members welcome to Harry F. Abate Elementary School!

    I am hoping this note finds you and your family members well and ready for the 2022-2023 school year in our Intermediate Sister School Grades 3-6, Enrichment Grades 2E-6E.

    The administrative team, custodial, office and instructional staff members have been working very hard over the 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 and important information to help your child be successful in school throughout the year.

    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
