Dear Central Islip School Community,

Jenny Han once said, "I've always loved the first day of school better than the last day of school. Firsts are best because they are beginnings!" I want to welcome you back to a new beginning, the 2021-2022 academic year! In cooperation with the Board of Education, our Administrators, Faculty and Staff worked diligently throughout the summer, making preparations to welcome our students upon their return to school.

Many of our students participated in various summer enrichment and academic initiatives to bridge the gap over summer vacation and prepare them for a smooth transition into the new school year. I enjoyed receiving all of the beautiful pictures students sent me as they read their favorite summer books. I was excited to have students email me to share their summer fun.

On behalf of the Administration, Faculty, and Staff, I especially want to thank you for your cooperation as we continue to navigate safely through the pandemic. Facemasks will be required while in school buildings and on school buses. The District will continue to monitor CDC guidelines and New York State recommendations, and you will be kept apprised of any changes in protocols. Please monitor the District website at ( and Facebook page for information and notices from your child's teacher(s) on upcoming school events and important dates.

Ms. Sharon A. Dungee
