Welcome to Central Islip Public Schools

Dear Central Islip Residents, Parents & Guardians,

As we approach the beginning of the 2020-2021 School Year, it will be unlike any other. Our reopening plan has been submitted to the New York State Education Department (NYSED) and the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH). 

The School Reopening Committee, comprised of District stakeholders, worked tirelessly on our District's Re-entry plan. All options have been considered. Due to the size of our student enrollment, limited space throughout our buildings, and mandates regarding social distancing, we have created a plan that is our most viable option to resume instruction in the safest, most effective manner possible. 

We wish nothing more than to have all of our students in school every day, as this is the best way to meet our students' academic, physical, and social-emotional needs. During these challenging times caused by the pandemic, the health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Therefore, we must follow guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the New York State Education Department (NYSED), and the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH).  

On behalf of the Board of Education, Administration, Faculty, and Staff, I would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the Central Islip Community for your support, patience, and understanding, as we meet our students' academic needs through a lens focused on health and safety. Special thanks to our District's Reopening Committee, a team of truly dedicated, hardworking professionals whose time, effort, and collaboration made possible the safest, most effective reopening plans as we look ahead to the 2020-2021 School Year. I am confident that our plans fit the needs of our students as well as the Governor's guidelines on reopening.

We wish all Central Islip students and families a healthy and prosperous school year, and we hope that a return to full-time, in-person learning happens as soon as possible.

Ms. Sharon A. Dungee
Superintendent of Schools
