Emergency Dismissal Drill Dec. 23, 2021

In compliance with the Commissioner of Education's Regulations for the State of New York, each school district is required to prepare and have adopted by their school board a written Emergency Management Plan. This plan is to aid the administrators of the school district in dealing with emergency situations from a variety of natural and man-made causes.

As part of the Lindenhurst Union Free School District's Emergency Management Plan, we must test our plan once every school year. As per our guidelines, this early dismissal should occur not more than fifteen (15) minutes before normal dismissal time.

This letter is to inform you that we will be conducting our yearly dismissal drill on Thursday, Dec. 23, 2021. This is the day before the holiday recess. What this means to you is that all elementary, middle and high school students will be dismissed fifteen (15) minutes earlier than their normal dismissal time. Any student who receives transportation will be transported fifteen (15) minutes earlier.

Red Ribbon Week

In recognition of “National Red Ribbon Week” from Oct. 25-29, students throughout the district took part in age-appropriate activities that reinforced this year’s theme, “Drug Free Looks Like Me.”

The Red Ribbon Week campaign is celebrated nationally and emphasizes the need to make healthy choices and live a drug free life. The campaign also serves as a visual reminder that together, school communities stand united against drug use.

During the week, students demonstrated their spirit and commitment to making healthy choices by participating in a series of designated mini-themed activities assigned to the school days such as wearing wacky socks to school to “Sock” it to drugs, or donning superhero gear to illustrate that students have the power to say no to drugs.

At West Gates Avenue Elementary School such messages were reinforced during physical education classes in which teacher, Anthony Montavani established thematic exercise activities such as using resistance bands to resist temptation, jump ropes to skip over drugs, and relay races as a reminder to chase after your dreams.

Some schools within the district incorporated guest speakers including popular children’s authors and Suffolk County Police Department School Resource Officer, Jeannie Osias who spoke to fourth and fifth-grade students at Alleghany Avenue Elementary School.

Information regarding P-EBT Food Benefits

We are aware that districts are receiving questions from parents regarding the ePBT benefits. Below is some helpful information that you can share with parents expecting benefits. For additional information please visit NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance P-EBT Benefits Information Page: https://otda.ny.gov/SNAP-COVID-19/

New York State is providing Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) food benefits to all households with children who are eligible to receive free school lunch under the National School Lunch Act and whose school was closed or operating with reduced in-school attendance due to COVID-19 during the 2020-2021 academic year.

Issuance of the food benefit will continue for several months, due to a large number of eligible children and schools participating in the National School Lunch Program across the state.

If your child(ren) is eligible and has not received P-EBT benefit by November 2021, you may fill out the P-EBT Information Form

(https://link.zixcentral.com/u/ab3853fc/2i9dO0oW7BGd0bG90C6LPw?u=https%3A%2F%2Fforms.office.com%2FPages%2FResponsePage.aspx%3Fid%3D6rhs9AB5EE2M64Dowcge5xOHCi6o8CpIhK5UlB98liVUQlNLVkpSRFJQUlkwR1lCT1E4T09SVzc3Ry4u) .

If your child(ren) is newly enrolled in their school and/or you believe they qualify for free or reduced-price school meals, please contact your child’s school to ask about the program requirements.
