A Message from the William E. Cottle Elementary School

Principal's Message

January 21, 2022

Dear Cottle Families,

It’s hard to believe the school year is halfway over. How quickly the month of January has flown by, and another fun month is just around the corner. January brings a fresh start for each of us and is a time to set goals and prioritize for the year. We are no different here at Cottle School. This has been such a challenging and rewarding year for Mr. Morash and myself, and we appreciate all the hard work our students, teachers, and community members have done so far #GOCOTTLE.

We confirmed that there was an incident in the Town of Bronxville in which an 11-year old child was offered a ride home from someone in a parked vehicle on Park Place. A bystander heard the conversation, removed the child from the location, and called the police.  Thankfully, no one was hurt and the subject was arrested.

Please take some time to go over with your families the prevention tips listed below. Teach your children to become aware of dangerous people and the lures they may use to entice them. Also, please always be aware of your surroundings and report any suspicious behavior to the police. 

  1. Stay away from strangers. Do not talk to or take anything from a stranger.
  2. Don’t go anywhere with someone you don’t know. Never accept a ride from a stranger.
  3. Stay more than an arm’s reach from a stranger. If a stranger approaches you, run, scream, and seek help immediately from a police officer or trusted adult.
  4. Use the buddy system. Avoid walking anywhere alone.
  5. If a stranger grabs you, do whatever it takes to stop the stranger and scream for help.
  6. Report any suspicious activity to a police officer or trusted adult.
  7. Do not wear headphones or earbuds when walking. Be alert of your surroundings and let others know where you will be and what time you will be back.

Please take this opportunity to review safety procedures with your child/children. Our counseling staff will visit all classrooms in grades K-7 to talk about staying safe. As always, we are here to help in any way necessary to ensure the well-being of our students.

It doesn't feel like Spring outside today, but it will be Spring  before you know it. Registration is now open for the Spring season of Tuckahoe Youth Association Baseball.  We look forward to creating a fun baseball experience for children, ages 4-12.  You can register using this link and please register early.
