Dear Parents, Students, Faculty and Staff,
Thank you for all you have done and accomplished this past school year under extraordinary conditions. The North Merrick schools never closed, nor missed a beat! In fact, we adapted to new circumstances and grew as a teaching and learning community. I am so happy that our sixth grade trips to Camp Coleman will take place this month in person as well as the end-of-year Kindergarten Celebrations and Sixth Grade Moving-Up Ceremonies. Our summer programs are in full swing for July-August, and registration is ongoing. We are hopeful that Fall 2021 will look more like the start of a traditional school year, and we are working with our principals, faculty and PTAs to put a full roster of activities and events on the 2021-22 calendar.
However, this transitional time can be confusing and uneasy for many people. Our North Merrick family has been through a lot, and we continue to actively address the social-emotional needs of students and staff as we close out the school year. The central administrative team coordinates with our school psychologists, social workers and nurses who are an integral part of the North Merrick Mental Health and Wellness Coalition to provide support for our families. I hope you find this North Merrick Healthy Everyday e-newsletter informative and a ready resource as we move forward, together.
Dr. Cynthia Seniuk, Superintendent of Schools
