Hauppauge Board of Education To Discuss Days Lost to Sandy

Superintendent Patricia Sullivan-Kriss announces a special meeting of the board on Monday night.

 

Hauppauge school officials will gather on Monday night to discuss what impact Hurricane Sandy will have on school year for Hauppauge students. 

Superintendent Patricia Sullivan-Kriss announced there will be a special meeting of Hauppauge Board of Education at 7 p.m. Monday at former Whiporwhil Elementary School to discuss how to make up the days school closed for Hurricane Sandy and the nor`easter. Hauppauge School District was closed for a week following Hurricane Sandy due to power outages and downed trees closing local roadways. 

Her announcement to district residents reads: 

Parents, students and staff are all questioning the effect of the storm closing on the remainder of the school year.  There will be a special Board of Education meeting tomorrow evening at 7:00 PM at Whiporwhil at which time our plan to make up the lost instructional days for students will be finalized.  In so doing, we will be able to notify the community on Tuesday so that families can make any necessary accommodations or adjustments in their schedules.

In the original 2012-2013 calendar, the district had incorporated for up to three snow days.

Hauppauge Bd of Ed and its Superintendent should be ashamed of their actions against one of their teachers that they just terminated. How a principal could slide over rules dealing with a child with an IEP and blame a teacher for this child misbehaving along with a parent complaining when the same principal directed this teacher to speak to that parent about a parking spot leads anyone in education to doubt the actions of this Bd. and the ability of this principal . The Superintendent did nothing also but sit out and let one of her principals get away with it. As a teacher, mentor, teacher of teachers I am appalled at the lack of humanity that you all showed. I will contact the local papers and anyone else I think needs to be contacted. You are all a disgrace to the profession that I love, respect and have worked in for over 30 years. Florence Zaccaria
