January 2022!


Dear Central Islip Families and School Community:


As we enter the New Year, it is time to look forward. We wish you and your family happiness and health throughout the year. When a new year begins, the words of Vern McLellan often come to mind, "What the new year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the new year" Therefore, in light of our present circumstances, We implore you to be the finest version of yourself possible; our children are watching and need our direction to help create the brightest future imaginable.


We want to take a moment to express our gratitude to our families and employees for maintaining all safety measures over the winter break. We will continue monitoring covid cases and planning appropriately to maintain the safest environment possible.
