Principal's Message

February 2016

Dear Parents/Guardians:  
“Jonas”, the blizzard of 2016, reminded us of where we were about a year ago with ”Juno”. I hope we do not get any more reminders of all the snow we had last year.

This is a good time to share with our Islip Middle School community, the process that is followed when delayed openings are put in place. When a delayed opening is announced, the middle school runs on condensed instructional periods with no advisory class. The delay schedules can be found on the district web page. Regularly scheduled buses will be delayed accordingly. After school activities are always monitored as the day progresses and may need to be canceled. Visit the web page or local media to get the most up-to-date Islip snow schedule announcements. As of this writing, no snow days have been impacted.

There have been some questions about National Junior Honor Society and Renaissance. The criteria are posted in the student planner which should answer a number of questions. Please note, all students are considered, however, the criteria include grades, attendance and behavior which form the foundation of the programs. Not all students are eligible at the end of each quarter or year to participate in Renaissance Rewards. In an effort to monitor the integrity of the programs, the criteria set forth will be what we use to determine eligibility.

Lastly, by this time I should have received all educational requests for next year’s placements. If you did not receive a reply letter from me, please resubmit. 

Timothy P. Martin, Principal
