Dear Parents, Students and Community Members,
Welcome to the 2021-22 school year in the North Merrick School District! Our teachers are busy fine-tuning their classroom plan books, and our custodial staff is hard at work getting the school buildings in tip-top shape. We cannot wait to welcome our students back to school! As a school community, we have been through a lot together this last year and a half, but we have learned so much in the process. Last year, North Merrick offered in-person classroom instruction five days a week - and never closed during the school year! We have built a solid foundation on which we will expand and grow. Thank you to all the parents, faculty and staff who provided their insights and ideas on the survey sent out in August. We are committed to working together - administrators, faculty, staff, and parents - on behalf of our K-6 students. As is necessary, we will continue to assess, adapt, and adjust and find the right balance of academic, physical, and social-emotional learning so that students achieve to their fullest potential. I look forward to sharing all the good news coming from the North Merrick School District this year!
Dr. Cynthia Seniuk, Superintendent of Schools
