Locker Clean-Out Parent Letter

May 29, 2020

Dear East Islip Students and Guardians,

We will be inviting our students into the building to clean out the contents of their hall locker on June 3, 2020. Only students are allowed to enter the building to accomplish this task. Please adhere to the schedule below to maintain a limited number of students in the building at one time. Students should bring a mask with them, otherwise one will be provided. All building occupants should adhere the following guidelines:

  • Keep at least 6 feet between yourself and others.
  • Wear a face covering.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in public areas, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
  • If soap and water is not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or sleeve when sneezing or coughing. Do not use your hands.
  • Do not touch your face – especially your eyes, nose, or mouth – with unwashed hands.
  • Monitor your health more closely than usual for cold or flu symptoms.
  • If you are sick, stay home.
  • Do not shake hands.
  • Avoid all unnecessary gathering.


Students will enter at the northeast corner of the building off Spur Drive. They report to their locker to remove all contents and proceed south to the front of the building. This will be a one-way traffic flow. Tables will be available at the end of the hallway to collect any school issued textbooks, novels, calculators, library books, etc. If those items are currently at home, they should bring them with them to drop off.

Please note, if you borrowed a district issued laptop/device you will return that device at a later time. Thanking you in advance for your cooperation.

Hello, East Islip High School students. We are happy to announce that we will be holding officer elections virtually this year! If you would like to run for an officer of your Class Council or for Student Government you should email the advisors and they will send you an attachment for the paperwork that you need to fill out. All paperwork is to be submitted to your advisors by Thursday, May 28th. If more than one person applies for an officer position, then short video clips will need to be made and a class election will take place. Your advisor will be able to give you more information on that. Below is the contact information:

Student Government Advisors: Mrs. Boucher & Mrs. Lopiccolo

Class of 2021 Advisors: Mrs. Boucher & Miss Quigley

Class of 2022 Advisors: Dr. Costa and Mrs. Pannetta

Class of 2023 Advisors: Mr. Prechtl & Mis DiGiovanna

Class of 2024 Advisors: TBD (contact people will be Mrs. Boucher & Mrs. Lopiccolo until advisors have been approved)

Jr. Prom Information - As you know, our Junior Prom was scheduled for May 15, 2020 at The Manor in Patchogue. Due to the pause and for the safety and well-being of our students and staff, this event has been cancelled. Our class advisors were able to preserve any monies left as a deposit and arrange for our Senior Banquet to be held at the same location on November 2, 2020. While this is a tremendous disappointment, we look forward to the time that we can celebrate together as a class soon.

Dear Juniors and Families:

I want to make you aware of three college information sessions we have coming up in the near future. We are partnering with LIU Post to offer sessions focused on Student Life, College Majors and Financial Aid. University experts in these three areas will present on Student Life on Thursday, June 4, College Majors on Thursday, June 11 and Financial Aid on Monday, June 15. All sessions will begin at 5:00 PM and include a Q & A portion. Please see the brief descriptions of each program below with the link to join the session.

The Student Life information session will give high school juniors a glimpse into student life on a college campus. Presenters will cover such topics as academic advising, living on campus and student engagement. College administrators will also give tips on how to utilize the senior year to prepare for college. Please join the presentation on Thursday, June 4 at 5pm by clicking here: Student Life

The College Majors workshop will serve as an introduction to understand the different areas of study at the post-secondary level, and how a student’s learning interest can align with potential careers through the careful selection of a college major. Please join the presentation on Thursday, June 11 at 5pm by clicking here: College Majors

The Financial Aid workshop will serve as an introduction to preparing, understanding and navigating the world of college financial aid. Please join the presentation on Monday, June 15 at 5pm by clicking here: Financial Aid

The college board is working hard in the background to figure out why some students are encountering issues and have created a troubleshooting page for students. We want to assure you that we have no desire for students to have issues and we understand the frustration of students and parents. We want to share this page and draw your attention to a few of the most common issues. Click here to view the troubleshooting page.

Dear Students and Parents,

As we navigate these times of great uncertainty, we do so together.  The Guidance staff at the Middle and High School will be actively monitoring their respective emails to continue to serve the students and families in our charge.
Please be aware of the following important pieces of information:

1. The deadline for local scholarship submission has been extended to May 6, 2020. We invite all seniors to visit our high school guidance page and complete applications for any scholarships that interest them. We would also remind seniors the deadlines for most national scholarships have not passed. You can use any of the search engines linked on the HS Guidance Webpage/Scholarships. Completed local scholarship applications will be submitted to the HS guidance office on May 6, 2020. During this period of extension, seniors should take the time to review their applications and ensure that they are complete. Should this deadline be extended again, this will be communicated via email and in the guidance announcement section on the HS website. Please note that message on the home page is usually updated 48 hours after an email message is sent. Thank you.

2. The Guidance Staff at several points throughout the school year pushes into classrooms or plans small group/individual sessions with their students to complete a variety of activities to ensure they are career and college ready.  To that point, the counselors are working tirelessly to make connected experiences for their students to participate in while at home.  They can be located by clicking the counselor’s name in the staff directory of the middle school or high school.

3. A message went out via Naviance and Infinite Campus messenger regarding SAT preparation through method test prep.  Below is the information in case you did not receive the email:
Join us for LIVE ACT or SAT mini-lessons with Method Test Prep's expert teachers to help students stay engaged and focused during extended school closures. Each day, we will be presenting at 11 am Eastern/10 am Central.
Simply go to Method Test Prep's Facebook page at 11 am Eastern for this live instruction.
