Inspired by a tradition of excellence and a spirit of continuous improvement, the Spackenkill School District will provide all of our students with the academic and social skills necessary to pursue their goals and become responsible citizens in an interdependent global community.
At the September 11th Board of Education meeting the school calendar was changed, moving our Superintendent's Conference Day from November 7th to November 17th.
This change will allow for K – 5 parent conferences at Nassau and Hagan Elementary Schools. Nassau and Hagan will also host after school parent conferences on November 16th. This change is in response to the NYS Education Department’s interpretation of half days as not meeting attendance requirements. The June half days listed as 19th – 21 for K – 8 are dependent upon weather closings and meeting the minimum attendance requirements as prescribed by education law.
Todd Middle and Spackenkill High School will host staff development activities therefore no students will be in attendance on November 17th.
November 7th is Election Day and Spackenkill High School will serve as a voting location.
