Dear Central Islip Families and School Community,


An Unknown author once said, "Don't be afraid of new beginnings. Don't shy away from new people, energy, and surroundings. Embrace new chances at happiness." Welcome Back to the 2022-2023 School Year, Central Isip!

We look forward to seeing all of our returning students. We want to extend a very special welcome to our new Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and students joining the Central Islip School District for the first time.

This year will be filled with exciting and inspiring educational opportunities for our students. There will be a focused emphasis on academics, technology, athletics, music, and the arts as we continue building an enriching learning environment for all students to excel and succeed to the best of their abilities. We want our students to grow through inspiring educational experiences and friendships they will make in school.


Education and learning empower us with the knowledge that will allow us to appreciate and improve our constantly changing global society. The Board of Education, Administration, Faculty, Staff, and I look forward to a continued partnership between home and school. This is absolutely vital as we work together to build a solid foundation upon which our students will thrive and develop into their best selves. Through powerful teaching strategies, we in Central Islip Schools are committed to guiding our students to achieve their best in academics and life endeavors. Perhaps Benjamin Franklin summed it up best with this famous quote: "Tell me, and I forget. Teach me, and I remember. Involve me, and I learn."


Maintaining a safe and secure school environment for students, staff, and visitors is paramount throughout our School District. We continue to practice zero tolerance policies to deter adverse behaviors. Conversely, we promote positive behavior and encourage mutual respect for all in our buildings and on school grounds.


As the academic year progresses and any questions arise, please feel welcome to contact your child's school. Updated information on important school events, Board of Education meetings, parent-teacher conferences, parent-teacher association activities, weather-related delays or closures, and other pertinent data are available on the District website, District calendar, forthcoming newsletters, and social media platforms.


On behalf of the Board of Education, Administration, Faculty, and Staff, welcome back to a new and exciting school year!




Ms. Sharon A. Dungee

Superintendent of Schools
