The Lynbrook Police Departments Drug Take Back Day was a huge success. Thank you to all the residents who participated. For every person who dropped off their expired/left over prescriptions, it's that much less that will find its way into our water supply.

ASSEMBLYMAN BRIAN CURRAN:”LET’S FIX OUR ROADS”
Secures over $9.2 Million for County Roads

“Let’s fix our county roads,” said New York State Assemblyman Brian Curran. “The Nassau County-owned roadways have been neglected for far too long. Some of them look like we are on a battlefield, with potholes wide and deep,” he continued as he recently secured over $9.2 million in state funding for Nassau County’s road infrastructure improvement in the 2018-19 state budget.

“When I was a youngster, you could tell when you crossed over from the city to Nassau County by the way your car stopped bumping up and down because of the freshly paved, pothole–free roads”, said Assemblyman Curran. “Today, there is virtually no difference. I want to get back to the way it was: better, safer and less wear and tear on our vehicles. That is why I fought so hard to put the money back in the state budget for our county roads.”

Assemblyman Curran worked to restore these millions in funds after they were cut by Governor Cuomo in his original fiscal plan.

“During the course of my travels in and around my district, and hearing from my constituents in the area, I have noticed that there is a real problem with the county road infrastructure,” Assemblyman Curran said. “I brought this to the attention of County Executive Laura Curran in a letter and want to see if we might work together to repair our county roadways.”

There is a noticeable increase in potholes and the overall degradation of county roads such as Lakeview Avenue, Long Beach Road, Peninsula Boulevard, Oceanside Road, Franklin Avenue, Hempstead Avenue, Ocean Avenue, Whitehall Street/Railroad Avenue, Grand Avenue and Broadway, in particular.

“In many cases, potholes cannot be fixed because there is no asphalt or cement left to fill it with hot or cold patch”, Assemblyman Curran explained. “Many streets are down to the steel and dirt. Road markings have worn off, lane identification lines are spotty or missing, shoulder reflectors have broken away, and street crossings have been compromised because of the wearing down of the streets. We need to act and act now before we have serious motorist and pedestrian issues,” he said.

In the newly passed New York State budget for fiscal 2018-19, Assemblyman Curran and his colleagues fought to restore the Governor’s cuts to CHIPS, Extreme Winter Recovery and PAVE-NY funds to assist with the county’s infrastructure issues. This year, the county should receive over $9.2 million in road repair funding.

“We need to act as soon as possible now that the asphalt companies appear to have re-opened for business after the winter. Our county roadways are moving towards a crisis stage and I believe we need to address this in an expeditious manner. Hopefully we can all work together to get our roads back in shape. We must make them safer for all who travel and our pedestrians who frequent these areas,” Assemblyman Curran concluded.
Let's Fix Our Roads! Attached is a press release sent to the various local papers.
Held my 2nd annual Youth Leadership Event this past weekend recognizing students in the 21st Assembly District and their contributions to their schools and communities. Congratulations to Ally Fitzgerald and Allison Kunstler! Keep up the great work!
I was so happy to participate in the Lynbrook Republican and Lynbrook New Vision Guest Bartending Night at the VFW benefiting the Lynbrook Mom & Dad's Club. This is the second year the Republican Club and New Vision Club have
held this fundraiser. Last night, the event raised over $1,600 for Lynbrook High School athletes.

Great job by both local political parties in supporting our kids! Thank you to all of the parents and club members that supported the fundraiser. Special thanks to Lynbrook Mayor Alan Beach, Town Councilman Anthony D'Esposito, Deputy Mayor Hilary Becker, Trustees Hawxhurst, Reardon and Boccio. Thanks to the VFW and Roseann Strife.
Had my annual head shaving in honor of St. Baldrick's Foundation, a great organization that works towards ending childhood cancer.
Thank you BOE, Lynbrook. Faculty and Administration.

Let’s all come together as a community to assure the No Harm Policy does no harm.

Let's encourage our students to be more motivated now than ever before.

Let’s inspire them to use this no-harm policy to their advantage, instead of considering it as a safety net.

Let’s insist that they study harder to have a positive score contribute 20% to their overall GPA - placing them at an advantage to our neighboring and competing schools.

Let’s strive to maintain the academic rigor that sets Lynbrook apart.

Let’s assure our students set their goals high.

Let’s maintain Lynbrook’s designation as a Reward School and hang that plaque proudly in the High School office.

Go Owls!!!
Great work!!! So happy this bond passed! 💚💛🦉

Please support this great opportunity to be part of Lynbrook's legacy.

Lynbrook Council of PTAs, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, raises funds annually for scholarships for the graduating seniors of Lynbrook High School. We have awarded a total of over $150,000 over the past 10 years to hundreds of deserving students. In prior years the majority of our fundraising was done at the annual homecoming football game. That game was unable to be played this year due to COVID.

We are very excited to share our new fundraising campaign. We have partnered with Brick R Us for our Pave a Path engraved brick fundraiser. Our goal is to present the Class of 2021 seniors with the same scholarships we have in the past. Check out the link for more details .

Lynbrook High School National Art Honor Society members, along with NAHS adviser Michael Kunz, recently facilitated their fourth “Gifted” online art auction during the Thanksgiving weekend. They raised $840 and will use the funds to purchase Target gift cards for Lynbrook High School families in need this holiday season.

The online art auction featured fall themed still life paintings created by 18 talented members of the school’s National Art Honor Society. The 8” x 10” framed paintings showcased pumpkins, apples and turned leaves with a warm autumn color palette. Bidding for each piece started at $15 and some paintings sold for more than $100, making the auction a large success.

Please get your information about reopening directly from the district. Put 8/12/2020 on your calendar for the live roll out of the full plan.

The Lynbrook Board of Education held a work session meeting at Lynbrook High School on July 21. The community was invited to watch the meeting through a livestream on the district’s website.

Board President William Belmont provided the community with a timeline for the district’s reopening plans. Under the guidance of New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the district will submit their plans to the state on July 31. The governor will then decide on Aug. 7 how he will address those plans and the board will meet on Aug. 12 to present the plan to the community. This meeting will be held in the Lynbrook High School gymnasium and be livestreamed. Due to state regulations on large gatherings, some residents will be able to attend the meeting. This will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Prior to the meeting, the presentation will be posted to the district website, lynbrookschools.org, to give community members a closer look at what to expect in the fall.

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Melissa Burak shared further details regarding reopening. “There are many requirements and we, in Lynbrook, are doing our best to provide a safe environment for all staff and students,” she said.

She detailed different models that the district is reviewing. For example, on the elementary K-5 level, introducing a gold model and green model. The gold model will represent in-person instruction, every day. The green model will be the remote model for students who need to remain at home. At this time, the remote or green model, will involve a live, digital interactive experience with a certified teacher.

Due to the amount of movement that takes place all day at the secondary level, the models that the district is looking to implement for grades 6-12 will look different than the primary level. The green model will be for those who need to remain at home and will involve a live, digital synchronous experience. The blue model will allow for students to attend school in-person, every other day with the alternating day consisting of the live, digital synchronous learning.

The district is still exploring the logistics about classroom and large space utilization in all buildings. Health and safety protocols are being finalized, along with scheduling and the delivery of courses in the school buildings. Once the district’s plan is submitted to the state, families will be asked to submit a letter of intent indicating which model they would like. Families can change their decision at a certain point during the school year.

In addition, Dr. Burak shared the decisions that have already been made to properly clean and disinfect the buildings for the safe return of students. This includes:

• Postponing the adult education program until the spring semester.
• Postponing the before school intramural program until November at which time, the district will revisit the status of the public health situation.
• Requiring PPE for all when social distancing is not feasible. At the very least, this means any movement in the building between classes, in stairwells, hallways and during staff-student meetings, face masks must be worn.
• The elementary RAS program operating under the Department of Health guidelines; however, students must remain in their home school. This means that kindergarten students will remain at the Kindergarten Center this year rather than be bussed to another elementary school to be with siblings. The district understands that a staggered pick up time must be arranged for families that need to pick up in two locations.
• Delaying the fall sports season (at this time) until Sept. 21 as per the state athletics association.

The community is encouraged to visit the district’s Reopening Plan page at www.lynbrookschools.org/district/reopening_plan as information will be forthcoming.

07/13/2020

Lynbrook Public Schools has formed a Reopening Schools Task Force that is meeting throughout the summer to create a District Reopening of Schools Plan that will provide a safe and effective learning environment for all students and staff for the 2020-2021 school year.

To ensure all stakeholders are provided with up-to-date information, the district has created a Reopening Plan webpage. The page will be continuously updated throughout the school year to provide important information to our school community. To access the reopening page and all relevant information, please visit this link. https://www.lynbrookschools.org/district/reopening_plan

Lynbrook Public Schools plans for reopening

Following the closure of school buildings due to COVID-19, schools across New York State were tasked with providing remote learning instruction to thousands of students. With the possibility of school buildings remaining closed in the fall, the Lynbrook Public Schools formed a reopening committee to examine its remote learning program and ways it could be further improved.

Consisting of teachers, parents, students, support staff and administrators, the core committee and its subcommittees reviewed the district’s current model and worked to create a plan that will offer structure for students, increased communication for parents and professional development for staff. Areas of focus for the committee were: acquiring a standardized learning management system, creating a full structured day of learning at both the elementary and secondary levels, improved communication between the schools and the home, providing differentiation virtually, board policy updates, professional development and supervision, among others.

“Our goal is to provide a full, balanced educational program should remote learning continue in the fall,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Melissa Burak.

As part of the proposed plan, all students would begin their day in the morning with daily announcements. This would be followed by live instruction daily. In addition to live instruction, students would be provided with independent assignments and scheduled extra help opportunities.

Full details of the plan will be presented at the Board of Education work session scheduled for Thursday, June 4 at 7 p.m. Residents are encouraged to view the meeting to hear the details of the reopening at https://lynbrookschools.org/boe/virtual_meetings.

Congratulations to Lynbrook High School.

The State Education Department today identified 582 schools that are high achieving and high progress as Recognition Schools, Interim Commissioner Shannon Tahoe announced. Under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan, Recognition Schools are those with high academic achievement and strong progress, that also perform acceptably for all subgroups for which they are accountable. This year’s designees represent 13 percent of New York State public schools.

232 are New York City public schools; 313 are public schools in the rest of the state; and 37 are public charter schools, of which 35 are located in New York City.

“These are exemplary public schools that demonstrate that all students can achieve at high levels with the right supports and resources,” Board of Regents Chancellor Betty A. Rosa said. “Recognition Schools help to ensure equity for all children across New York State. The Regents and I are grateful to all of the teachers and administrators who, in concerted effort with their school communities, are guiding our students toward success.”

“Recognition schools are the highest performing and rapidly improving schools across the state,” Interim Commissioner Shannon Tahoe said. “Recognition Schools across the state demonstrate the relentless commitment of teachers, administrators, staff and parents, without whom this growth would not have been possible.

Details on this achievement, plus the full list of schools can be found in today’s release: https://bit.ly/2YaVQLF
