Message to Families from School Support Team

Report Damages:

For FEMA to assign a Major Disaster Declaration, New York State has to hit a total threshold of $36 million in damages -- and judging by what we saw in Highland Falls yesterday, Orange County alone will easily eclipse that number. Please be sure to report your damages here so FEMA is compelled to act: REPORT DAMAGES

Highland Falls Shelter and Food:

The American Red Cross has established a shelter at the Sacred Heart facility/food pantry at 7 Cozzens Avenue, Highland Falls. If you know of a Highlands neighbor who has been displaced, or who is safe in their homes but without the ability to prepare food or have it delivered to them, please direct them to the Red Cross shelter.
