  • 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.

Principal's Message

January 13, 2017

Happy Friday! 

The students have been extremely busy this week! 

Primary 1 shared their journal entries with me. Mrs. Schoenstein's class has many talented writers and illustrators! Way to go, Primary1!

Primary 2 began a new STEM unit on Weathering and Erosion. Students conducted two experiments this week acting as geologist! They also watched a video on the effects of weathering on Mount Rushmore.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a snowflake? Intermediate 1 wrote about what they would see, hear, touch and feel. If you have a moment, take a look!

Intermediate 2 has been busy writing their articles for the May edition of KidsDay in Newsday. Students are conducting surveys, writing articles and conducting interviews for the paper. I cannot wait to see their finished work. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Mrs. Wissemann

Happy Birthday, Oysterponds!

New Year...New You!
