Dear Graduates

The entire Irvington school community is proud to honor the Irvington High School class of 2017 at their commencement ceremony on Saturday, June 17th.  The class of 2017 is an impressive group of students who have clearly left a positive mark on their School District, peers, and staff. When the faculty and staff reflect on their journey through our schools they will, of course, be remembered for their outstanding academic accomplishments as evidenced by their individual transcripts, college acceptances, National Merit Scholarships, National Greek and Latin awards, and many other scholarships.

Underway in Irvington

Irvington’s 2017 Comprehensive Plan is underway. The committee had its first meeting with the public to discuss the process of the 2017 plan update in mid-February. In an effort to involve Irvington residents, the committee has been delegated into five Working Groups, each with its own general range of issues, and will be comprised of residents ready to work through those issues and potentially come up with solutions.  Larry Schopfer, Village Administrator, says he’s optimistic.
