New Families

Dear New Families,

On behalf of the teachers, staff and families, we welcome you to Muscota New School.

Camille has been the principal since 2010. She is also the parent of a high schooler and a college student.

Allison started her career at Muscota in 2004 as a Guidance Counselor and then become the Assistant Principal in 2012. She considers Muscota her second home. She is the proud mother of a one year old girl and a newborn boy.

Denise has been the parent coordinator since 2006. She is also a proud grandmom to a 1 year old boy.

Our offices are on the 3rd Floor. Please stop by when you have time so you know where to find us. Another good way to reach us is by email: or

The Muscota New School staff is eager for you to feel welcome! For your children, the school will quickly become a second family. We aim to be a community of support for the grown-ups as well!

We hope you find this information helpful as you start your child's educational journey with us.

See you soon!

Camille, Alli and Denise
