Dear Connetquot Community,
Thank you to all of those parents and community members who attended the informative security presentation Tuesday night at Sycamore Avenue Elementary School. The thoughts, comments and dialogue shared were both encouraging and indicative of our community’s collective commitment to protecting the safety and security of our students, staff and schools.
While I know that many interested in the topic were unable to attend the meeting in person, I am writing to share the link to the audio/video recording of the presentation. The information shared Tuesday night was comprehensive and I believe something that each parent should hear. To access the audio/video recording, please visit the Board – Agenda/Minutes tab on the district’s website.
As was noted throughout the meeting, our district’s safety and security plans and procedures are an evolving process. While Connetquot is at the forefront of this topic, I assure you that we will not rest on our laurels, but rather will continue to assess our current practices and make thoughtful and proactive improvements to best protect our schools and community.
However, Tuesday night we were reminded that one of the most valuable assets we have is the information we receive. Therefore, in closing, I wish to remind all residents on the saying “if you see something, say something.” If something doesn’t seem right, report it. If there are concerns about an individual, report it. If you read or hear something troubling, whether on social media or in the community, report it. Together, and with all of the resources at our disposal, we can work to keep our schools ¬– and most importantly our children – safe.

As always, should you have any questions about this matter, please contact Security at 631-244-2243.
