Class of 2020 Signs

Good Morning CLASS OF 2020,

We are excited to announce that the signs have arrived. The signs will be distributed on Wednesday, May 20th, 11am-4pm.  We have established a curbside pick-up plan which helps ensure that health and safety guidelines are maintained. Please make sure to wear your masks to the designated pick-up area.


Students who are picking up a sign must bring their student ID with them. If a parent or guardian is picking up a sign, they must have the student’s ID or know the student’s ID number.  We are scanning IDs to keep track of who has picked up their signs.


  • Anyone arriving by car will enter the parking lot on Clove Road and follow the traffic pattern that is established by security. We are asking that everyone remain in their cars and open their trunks once they arrive at the pick-up station so that the sign could be placed inside.


  • Anyone who arrives by foot should enter campus through the Eastchester Road pathway.  Social Distancing markers will be set-up.  Masks must be worn to the pick-up location.


Please pick-up your lawn signs according to the following schedule:



11:00-11:45 AM


12:00-12:45 PM


1:00-1:45 PM


2:00-2:45 PM


3:00-3:45 PM



We are aware that many of you are anxious about the plans for the CLASS OF 2020's End of Year activities. None of us expected to be experiencing these unprecedented times and the entire community feels for you all. We have collaborated extensively to come up with a plan that will adequately celebrate your Commencement in a way that keeps you all safe and healthy. We will be sharing that plan by the end of the week.


Have a great weekend!! We look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday.

Congratulations Valedictorian and Salutatorian!

 New Rochelle High School has announced that senior Abigail Kazakov is the Class of 2020 valedictorian and Stephen Bartell is the Salutatorian.  

“Please join me in congratulating these two outstanding students,” said Interim Principal Joseph Starvaggi. “We are proud of Abigail and Stephen for consistently pursuing academic excellence and for being stellar examples of New Rochelle High School achievement.”

Both students show a range of interests. Kazakov plans to enter the medical field, considering a career in internal medicine or possibly dermatology.

“I’ve always been fascinated by it,” she said.

She is a member of the National Honor Society, secretary of the school’s Spanish Honor Society (for which she also served as a tutor) and a member of the Math Honor Society. In other interests, she plays tennis and practices taekwondo. She has played piano for 12 years, preferring Baroque and Romantic periods.

She said she appreciates the passion of Romantic-era composers such as Chopin and Rachmaninoff.

“When you play their pieces, it’s like a story that you’re telling,” she said.

Bartell plans to major in math in college, possibly with a minor in economics as he explores possible careers. He is president of the Math Honor Society and a member of the National Honor Society and the English Honor Society. He is also active on the Math Team and the school’s chapter of Junior State of America, an organization that helps develop leadership and debating skills.

To unwind from the rigor of mathematics, he plays the flute, preferring Baroque, jazz and blues.

“It’s nice to unplug and be a little more expressive,” he said.

Interim Superintendent Dr. Magda Parvey joined in praising the seniors.

“These two students exemplify the high-quality education our District provides,” she said. “We congratulate them and we look forward to their future accomplishments.”
