Dear Parents/Guardians of the SCOPE Lindenhurst Saturday Enrichment program:

Please be aware that there will be an Enrichment make-up class held on Saturday, December 21, 2019 (this class will replace the cancelled class from November 23rd).

Important: NYS Dept. Health Survey and Opt Out Form

Each year as part of a required health examination a student is weighed, his/her height is measured and a body mass index or ‘BMI’ is determined so medical staff could monitor and help maintain a healthy weight range.

Recent changes to the New York State Education Law require that BMI and weight status group be included as part of the student’s school health examination.

Each year a sample of school districts are required to participate in a New York State Department of Health survey. This year, Lindenhurst Union Free School District was among those districts selected to comply. Therefore, the district is required by law to report to the New York State Department of Health the information about students’ weight status groups by January 30, 2020. 

Only summary information is provided and that no names or specific information regarding individual students is divulged. 

The information submitted to the New York State Department of Health is used to assist health officials in the development of programs that will make it easier for children to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

You do have the right to exclude your child’s information from the report. If you do not wish to have your child’s weight status group information included as part of the Health Department’s survey this year, CLICK HERE to print and sign the BMI Survey Opt-Out Form in English or CLICK HERE to print and sign the BMI Survey Opt-Out Form in Spanish.

Forms must be submitted back to the McKenna Administration Building, 350 Daniel Street or emailed to  BMISurveyOptOutForm@lufsd.org before January 2nd, 2020 for students to be opted out from having their information included within the BMI survey submission.

Should you have any questions please contact Assistant Business Director Michael Van Wart at 631-867-3024.

Students in Michelle Rollman’s third grade class at William Rall Elementary School recently welcomed U.S. Army veterans Alice Diacosavvas, Michael O’Donnell and Gene Plastino to their classroom.

The students honored the veterans with a special rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” and prepared a homemade chili for the soldier’s lunch. The veterans answered the students’ questions and asked a few of their own.

 

“It is so thoughtful and a real honor for them to do this for us,” said veteran Alice Diacosavvas.
