Dear Martin De Porres Staff, Families, and Students,


Governor Cuomo has authorized individual schools & districts to reopen this fall. Martin De Porres submitted our plans for reopening to the New York State Education Department. Please follow the link above to our "Fall Reopening Resources" page where you will find the most current information on our plans, Federal and State guidance for reopening schools, and ongoing supportive resources for staff, families, and students. 


Please continue to check our webpage for updates. These are fluid times and making the most current information as it becomes available to our community is a priority.


All of us at MDP keep you all in our deepest thoughts, and pray for you and your loved ones health and safety everyday.
