Parents, Guardians, and Loved-ones,
My name is Dr. Jude A. Arthur, and I have both the honor and privilege of assuming the reigns of leadership as the Interim Acting Principal of 23Q until a new principal is appointed. As you are aware, former Principal Jones has transitioned as the leader of 23Q to another position in the Department of Education. Everyone across the school community will miss Ms. Jones’ infectious smile and presence in our day-to-day activities. We wish her the very best and know that she will continue to positively impact the educational experiences of the students in her charge.
Our lives are radically different from the same period of time in 2019. Despite the numerous changes and challenges that we have experienced individually, I want to assure you that the amazing staff of 23Q will continue to provide highly effective and “top notch” instruction, related services as well as mental health services to our students. I had the privilege of visiting many of the virtual and in-person classes across 23Q in my previous capacity as the Queens Liaison for District 75, and I will not hesitate to tout the quality of instruction and the immense dedication of our teachers, paraprofessionals, related service providers as well as our mental health staff that I have observed.
Thank you for entrusting your precious children to the 23Q community; we will continue to put them first and their safety will be our utmost priority. In the same vein of safety, it is important that you are able to reach me 24 hours per day, seven days per week. I encourage you to reach out to me, any of the assistant principals or the parent coordinator with questions, thoughts, and concerns. I look forward to meeting you all virtually and in-person in the coming days and weeks. Please continue to be on the look for on-going communications from the Department of Education and our 23Q community.
Dr. Jude A. Arthur, Principal
