Dear Parents / Guardians and Students,

Welcome back! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer vacation with family and friends!  We eagerly anticipate another successful year here in South Country School District and look forward to seeing you all when our doors open for our first day of school on  Wednesday, September 5, 2018. 

I am delighted to announce the following members of our administrative team, some new to the District, some promoted from within.

     Dr. Rebecca Raymond, Principal, Brookhaven Elementary School
     Mr. Jack Burke, Director of STEM
     Mrs. Rosa Kalomiris, Assistant Principal, Brookhaven Elementary School
     Mr.Joseph Watson, Assistant Principal, Bellport Middle School

Good communication is essential in a true family-school partnership, so I urge you to stay in touch with your child's teacher and principal throughout the school year. These individuals will be able to address any questions or concerns you may have. Listed below, please find the contact information for each of our schools:

       Bellport High School       (631) 730-1575 
       Bellport Middle School
 (631) 730-1626  
       Frank P. Long Intermediate School        (631) 730-1725  
       Brookhaven Elementary School  (631) 730-1700  
       Kreamer Street Elementary School  (631) 730-1650  
       Verne W. Critz Elementary School  (631) 730-1675  

In addition, the District has established procedures to respond effectively to questions and suggestions from parents and residents. The procedures start with the person closest to the situation, as it is that person that will have the most information. Because situations sometimes require that additional staff become involved in the conversations, we have categorized the major areas of interest, with a list for each area of those responsible. This information may be found on our district website at the following address:   http://www.southcountry.org/district/have_a_question

To assist you and your child in preparing for a great school, please review the Code of Conduct Summary and return the affirmation of the Code of Conduct, publication(s) and cell phone policies signature form to your building principal by September 12, 2018. Please note, the Code of Conduct is also available for review at your child's school.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the principal of your child's school.

Finally, there may be times when the weather will cause schools to have a delayed opening or close for the day. These decisions will generally be made by 5:30 am. All delays and closings will be posted on the district's website and the district will place a phone call through ConnectEd to your home or cell phone notifying you of any closings or delayed opening. The information will also be broadcast on the following stations:

         WALK 97·5 FM; WBAB 102.3 FM; WBZO 103.1 FM;WRCN 103.9 FM; WBLI 106.1 FM; and Channel12 TV News.

I look forward to working with you to ensure that all of our children have a very successful, safe and enjoyable school year.  On behalf of the Board of Education and our faculty and staff, welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!

Sincerely, 

Dr. Joseph Giani
Superintendent of Schools
