Achieving Excellence

  • Important Message from the Superintendent

    May 22, 2020

    Dear North Merrick Family:


    As we begin the Memorial Day Weekend, it feels even more important this year to honor the soldiers, past and present, who have served our country. There may be no parades or large gatherings scheduled, but there is a greater admiration for what it means to be a hero. 

    And, while this holiday celebrates those who fought bravely in far-off lands, we are also mindful of the people on the front line, here at home, protecting us through this crisis - our essential workers in hospitals and clinics, pharmacies and grocery stores, on firetrucks, and in patrol cars and ambulances -  they are our heroes, too - 

    As well as our students, parents, teachers, and principals who have rolled up their sleeves and succeeded in the largest educational endeavor ever undertaken! I am so proud of our North Merrick school community!

    So this weekend, when we also mark the unofficial start of summer by opening the backyard pool, pulling out the patio furniture, and starting up the grill, let's take time to quietly thank all the heroes we are witnessing during this historic time. As our Parent University guest speaker, Denise Daniels, reminded us, there are "silver linings" found in the most difficult moments, and we have persevered, with gratitude, hope, and resilience.  

    I look forward to sharing all the upcoming celebrations and activities planned in our Distance Learning platform for the end of the school year.  Have a relaxing weekend, and please stay well!


    Cynthia Seniuk, Ed.D.
    Superintendent of Schools
