Submitted by Charles Murphy, Island Trees Superintendent of Schools.
Similar to many other school communities on
Long Island, Island Trees was forced to modify our school
calendar due to Hurricane Sandy. Please remember school will be in
session during February recess (Tuesday, Feb. 19 to Friday, Feb.
22) with the exception of
Presidents’ Day, Monday, Feb. 18.
We understand many people believed
State would “waive” missed days.
New York State did not “waive” any of our lost school days; therefore, we changed our school calendar to meet
State’s 180 day requirement.
In addition, please note Island Trees will be in session Monday, April 1 (the day after Easter) and Friday, May 24.
The calendar is still subject to change if we have further
inclement weather days. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s school office.
