Huntington Pre-K-8

Alison Dupree, Principal 

 
August 2021
 
Greetings Huntington Pre-K-8 Families,
 
On behalf of the Huntington Pre-K-8 family, welcome to the 2021-2022 academic year! Our staff members have been enthusiastically working to prepare for the return of our scholars for full in-person learning.  Our first day of school will be Wednesday, September 8, 2021. The health, safety, and well-being of our scholars, staff, and families is important to us, and we are committed to providing the best learning environment for your child’s success.  The following information is to remind students and families of the expectations and changes that are in place for this academic year.  
 
  • COVID Guidelines:  The New York State Department of Health has recommended that school district’s and local health departments follow the recent Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidance regarding the reopening of school. This guidance suggests, in part, that all individuals wear masks indoors, maintain three feet of physical distance when possible, and continue with temperature checks and testing of staff and students.
  • All students will have their temperatures taken before they enter the building.
  • School hours for elementary school students: 9:00am-3:00pm (doors will open at 8:40am)
  • School hours for middle school students:  8:15am-3:00pm (doors will open at 7:55am)
  • Students are expected to be on-time and in school every day.
Arrival and dismissal procedures have been updated from the previous academic year, so please note updated guidance (please see additional information on the Huntington Pre-K-8 Arrival/Dismissal Map enclosure).
Arrival Procedures:
  • Parents/guardians will NOT be allowed entry in the building. Staff will greet your child and escort them to their classrooms.
  • All students and families are expected to wear masks on school grounds at all times. This includes outside when dropping off or picking up.
  • All students will have their temperature taken before entering the building.
  • Student Drop-Off:  To minimize congestion during arrival, parents/guardians are asked to not pick-up students in the area directly in front of Huntington on Sunnycrest Road if driving.  We ask that this space be used as a pass-through zone only.  Kindly unload in the outer areas of Sunnycrest Road or park on Forest Hill Drive to walk your child to the flagpole area for drop-off (please see the enclosed map). 
 
Dismissal Procedures:
  • Parents/guardians will NOT be allowed entry in the building.  Staff will escort students to the building exit.
  • Pre-K students may be picked up at the pool door.
  • If you care coming to pick-up your child, please meet your child in the area near the flagpole.
  • All other grade level students will be escorted and dismissed through the front entrance.
  • Student Pick-Up:  To minimize congestion during dismissal, parents/guardians are asked to not pick-up students in the area directly in front of Huntington on Sunnycrest Road if driving.  We ask that this space be used as a pass-through zone only.  Kindly load in the outer areas of Sunnycrest Road or park on Forest Hill Drive and walk to the front area near the flagpole to pick up your child (please see the enclosed map).
  • Students who ride the bus will be escorted to their buses by their teachers.

 
Staff members are working tirelessly to make sure that they are meeting the needs of students. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at the main office at 315-435-4565.  In this time of continual change, we thank you in advance for your patience and support.  We are eagerly awaiting the return of our scholars to the building, and we look forward to seeing you in the fall!
 
Sincerely,
Alison Dupree
