Superintendent of Schools

August 2017

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As the summer draws to a close, we are ready for the return on September 6th of approximately 7,000 of our East Meadow School District children including approximately 474 new kindergarteners. Our professional staff will be returning on September 1st and will be involved in various staff development activities as they excitedly prepare to meet their new classes on opening day.

The summer has been a busy one at the district level and in all of our buildings as well. A number of administrative changes/assignments have been put into place. Mr. David Casamento is the new Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, Dr. Christopher Hale is the new Director of Music and Art, Ms. Danielle Lasher is the new Assistant Principal at Woodland Middle School, Mr. Robert Hardwick is our new Dean of Students at W.T. Clarke High School, Ms. Marguerite Spriggs is our new Chairperson of Mathematics at W.T. Clarke High/Middle Schools, Mr. Stephen Engle is our new Chairperson of Music at East Meadow High School, Ms. Kelly Gelfer is our new Chairperson of Music at W. T. Clarke High/Middle Schools and Ms. Adrianna Schaefer is our new Chairperson of Music at Woodland Middle School.  We are excited about these administrative changes and believe that they will accrue to the ultimate benefit of the children we serve in our schools.

We continue to be on top of infrastructure work in all of our buildings thereby protecting the investment that each of our school buildings is to the community. The opening of schools in a few days should see a number of projects completed or nearly completed, including the following:
