Dear Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School Families,

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as your newly appointed principal.  I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of community involvement and academic success.  I have been dedicated to the field of education for 18 years with a specific concentration in literacy development, the teaching of writing and character development.  My administrative experience has been shaped by 10 years as an elementary school principal and 2 years as an assistant principal.  

Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established in the Rocky Point School District by building a strong relationship with parents, students and community partners.   We have been working hard all summer to plan for a safe opening of school and to implement best practices to mitigate the risks associated with Covid-19.  Our classrooms have been modified to increase social distancing, signage has been installed throughout the building to guide students, and our schedule has been modified to allow for more time for mask breaks, hand washing, and opportunities to access outdoor learning spaces.  A strong emphasis will be placed on social emotional learning as well to be sure that our students have a smooth transition back to school.

Partnering with families will be crucial this year as we face many obstacles due to the global pandemic.  We appreciate your support as you work with students at home to practice safety protocols such as wearing a mask and washing hands.  We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following our district website for important updates and information regarding our reopening plans. 

 Please be sure to attend the following virtual public meeting scheduled for parents/guardians and all staff members of JAE on Tuesday, August 18th at 6:30pm.  Dr. O'Brien, Superintendent of Schools, Mrs. Crossan, Assistant Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Van Cott, Assistant Superintendent for Business, Ms. White, Executive Director of Pupil Personnel Services, Mrs. Wilson, Executive Director of Educational Services and other district administrators and I will be presenting and answering questions regarding the reopening of schools.  
The meeting will be viewable on the Rocky Point School’s YouTube Channel.
Please feel to call or email me to discuss any concerns, suggestions or ideas to help make our school the best it can be!

Scott Bullis, Principal
