Feeling Good in February

As we turn our calendars to February, we are all optimistic that cold and flu season will soon be behind us. Please take a moment to remind your family of the important stay-healthy tips listed below:

If you or your children are sick,

  • Do not return to school or work until you are fever free (without the use of fever reducing medicine) for at least 24 hours.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Be sure to throw away the tissue after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with warm soap and water.  If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol – based hand rub.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth; that is how germs spread.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated (table tops, desks, TV remotes, game remotes, toys etc.)                 Please click the title to learn about the flu...

This morning, a press conference was held regarding the State's announcement of a 1.81% tax cap for the 2020-2021 school year. Commack Superintendent, Dr. Donald James, was one of those who spoke out regarding adequate funding for schools. "We pride ourselves in providing Access and Opportunity to college and career ready classes for all students," stated Dr. James. "Ninety percent (90%) of all graduates take at least one (1) college level course.  We have a 99% graduation rate, 98% go to college and stay in college, and the other 2% enter chosen careers or the military; our students are ready for the world!
