  • Lead Testing Update (December 2016)

    The Oysterponds School has complied with the State Mandatory Lead Testing of Water Regulations by collecting water samples beginning in September of this year.  After several sample tests and corrective plumbing work, our outlets have been tested at an acceptable level.

    The three outlets that did not reach the designated acceptable level have been shut off.  We have posted signs at those locations indicating  the faucets are for hand washing only pending further remediation.  

    As always, health and safety is our first priority.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

    Richard C. Malone, Superintendent

  • Did you know?

    The Oysterponds  School is the designated emergency shelter for Orient/Orient Pt. residents and the Greenport School is the designated emergency shelter for East Marion Residents.  We truly hope that we never need to use them, but it is always good to have a plan in place.  Experts tell us to be prepared to survive for up to 72 hours before outside help arrives.  Prepare a shelter kit to bring with you to include the following: 1) Change of clothing, rain gear, sturdy shoes, 2) Toiletries and personal items, medications, 3) Blankets or sleeping bag and pillow, 4) Identification, 5) Games, toys, books, 6) Special items for infants or elderly, 6) Non-perishable foods, 7) Sufficient water for 3 days, 8) Cell phone, flash light, extra batteries.  Thanks to the Red Cross, we have a supply of cots and blankets readily available.
