BOE were recognized.

During the Oct. 17 Lindenhurst Board of Education Community Forum, the board was recognized for their commitment to the district. Also recognized was former veteran board member, Robert Vitiello.            

Vitiello became a board of education trustee in 2001. During his tenure, he has served a trustee as well as a vice president during. He had been a consistent presence at school functions and for 17 years a staunched advocate for the students and staff of the district.            

Most recently, Vitiello has played a vital role in the establishment of the Lindy Grad Vets Wall of Heroes housed at the Lindenhurst High School. The fixtures recognize those members of the Lindenhurst school community who went on to bravely serve their country.           

 “Although he is no longer a member of the board, the result of his endless dedicated effort will be felt for years to come,” said Superintendent of Schools Daniel E. Giordano.             

Vitiello received proclamations from County Legislator Kevin McCaffrey, a representative from Sen. Phil Boyle’s office and Lindenhurst Mayor, Michael Lavorata, who declared Thursday, Oct. 18, 2018, Robert Vitiello Day in the village.

During the regularly scheduled board of education community forum held on June 13, his fellow board members begrudgingly accepted the voluntary resignation of this veteran board member.

On Sept. 23, the district's athletic teams, coaches, administrators and community members, along with local and state politicians, joined members of the Renna family at the 12th annual Christina Renna Foundation Walk-A-Thon and Blood Drive held at Lindenhurst Middle School.

Christina, a former student of the Lindenhurst School District, was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer, and passed away in 2007.

The walk supports the Christina Renna Foundation goal of  “supporting children's cancer research and increasing the levels of awareness and education through the support of cancer groups and outreach programs for the direct support of those in need,” as stated on the website, www.crf4acure.org. All money raised will benefit children’s cancer research at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.

Changes Made to Free & Reduced Lunch Process

Please be advised that the start of the 2018-19 school year will see a change in the application process for free and reduced meals within the Lindenhurst Union Free School District.            

To provide the most cost-effective services to the community and simplify the process, the district has made the decision to utilize the free MySchoolApps service. The app guides parents through the application process and confirms that all the necessary information has been provided before it’s submitted. 

The cost savings are not the only benefit, however. Parents will appreciate the convenience of being able to apply for free and reduced meals securely, from anywhere, using any device that is connected to the Internet. Additionally, the MySchoolApps service accommodates users who are fluent in English and Spanish. 

If you wish to apply for free and reduced meals and do not have access to the Internet or a facility which offers Internet usage, such as a local library, MySchoolApps kiosks will be made available at the main office of the Lindenhurst Senior High School, located at 300 Charles Street in Lindenhurst from August 17,2018 through  August 31st, 2018 between 7:45am and 12:45pm Monday through Friday as well as the McKenna Administration Building, located at 350 Daniel Street. Additionally, paper applications in English and Spanish will be available for pick up at the main office of each district school.            

Beginning September 4th, 2018 the Kiosks will be available for use at the McKenna Administration Building from 8am to 4pm Monday through Friday. The High School Kiosks will be available for use from 7am to 2:50pm Monday through Friday.
