Parents and Guardians, today we practiced lockdown drills in all three of our school buildings. We were assisted by officers from local law enforcement and other first responders. The students and staff handled the drill very well and we would like to commend everyone on their attention to the matter. It is important that we periodically practice these drills as part of our regular safety procedures. Schools in New York are required to conduct a minimum of four lockdown drills each school year. While we had to change how we handled lockdown drills due to the pandemic, today marked a return to conducting these drills based on pre-pandemic protocols. If you have any questions, please contact your building principal or my office. Sincerely, Salvatore DeAngelo, Ed.D., MBA - Superintendent

The railroad crossing on Woodbridge Ave. will be closed to traffic and pedestrians November 17-21, 2022 while CSX conducts work on the tracks. This will affect traffic patterns in the area as vehicles will not be able to access our schools from the Route 203 end of Woodbridge Ave. Please take this into consideration if driving or walking to our campus and allow yourself ample time to take an alternate route.
