Important Information

Bus transportation: Students are not permitted to go on any other bus than the one that they are assigned to and are required to sit in assigned seats.

Drop-off: If you plan on driving your child to school do not enter campus from Montauk Highway. Please use the student drop-off loop which is located behind the gymnasium, near the playground. The drop-off loop is accessed from Tuttle Avenue.

Dismissal: Dismissal begins at 3:08 pm. Please ensure an adult is present at your bus stop when your child is dropped-off at the end of the school day.
If a student does not take the bus home, parents may pick them up at the back door of the gymnasium, closest to Tuttle Avenue. You may park in the spaces behind the gym. Please remember to have proper identification for pick-up and to notify the school via note or phone call to 631.801.3173.

Early Dismissal: If there is an emergency or if it is necessary to pickup your child before the end of the school day, please do so prior to 2:35 pm. You will need to park in the visitor spaces in the main lot, not where the buses are lined up. Please send your child to school with a note, when possible, stating that you will be picking them up at a specific time and your child will need to provide this note to their classroom teacher.

Releasing of Students: Children will only be released to parents/guardians or emergency contacts (with prior permission). Photo identification is required when releasing a student from the building. No one under the age of 18 will be permitted to pickup a child under any circumstances.

Absences/Tardiness: Please call 631-801-3186 prior to 10 am if your child is absent. If you don’t notify the school prior to 10 am, you will receive automated calls to any numbers that we have on file.
When your child returns to school from an absence, please send a note indicating the date(s) and reason why they were absent from school.

Team Red was the winner of the 10th annual Battle of the Books for Eastport Elementary School sixth grade students. The winners include John Berkowitz, James Perna, Mariah Maekhyla Ryder, Kayleigh Tedesco and Victoria Tillman.

Much like a game show, Team Red and Team Blue quickly tapped a buzzer to give the name of a book and its author after hearing clues provided by library media specialist Alyssa Sorenson. The clues were derived from 12 books introduced to the students since January and were chosen with regard to reading levels and topics. In the past month, the sixth graders were questioned about the books and finalist teams (five per team) and five alternates were chosen.

Congratulations to Team Blue participants Mason Burke, Olivia Dabrowski, Julianne Mauceri, Ella Montelione and Ava Reehil and alternates Isla D’Amico, Ashlynn Bivona, Ava Fitzgibbon, Kaylee Jacobellis, Kendall Litchhult and Ella Roberts.

In recognition of April as National Poetry Month, Eastport Elementary School students studied various forms of poetry and created their own poems in library class. They learned how to write acrostic, haiku, limerick and Tonga poetry in preparation for the annual Poetry Slam, held on April 3-6.

During the Poetry Slam, each student presented one of each of the forementioned types of poems to classmates in a café-style atmosphere with light music in the background. After each student presented his/her poetry, the students clicked their fingers in approval.

Students also submitted their haiku poems to the National Young American Poetry Digest, and 277 students’ poems were selected to be published in the October 2023 edition.

During Poetry Month, Eastport Elementary students also celebrated National Library Week from April 24-28 through participation in the school’s annual bookmark contest. This year’s theme was “There’s More to the Story.” The winners included Riley Fox (6th grade), Karlee Muralles (5th grade) Juliana Almeida (4th grade) and Aubrey Melton (3rd grade).

Eastport-South Manor Jr.-Sr. High School Student Ambassadors recently visited Dayton Avenue and Eastport elementary schools’ sixth graders to allay their concerns about moving up to junior high school this coming fall.

Divided into teams, the student ambassadors spoke to the younger students about A/B days, how to adapt to a teacher’s teaching styles and expectations, homework, navigating the building, clubs and more. Most importantly, they emphasized that students must take responsibility for their academic success.

Eastport-South Manor Jr.-Sr. High School Principal Sal Alaimo was also on hand to introduce himself to the students. He encouraged them to set expectations for themselves early and to get to know their teachers.

“Your character is your character and will shine through to who you are,” Mr. Alaimo said.
