    7th Grade Trip To NYC

    September 24, 2020

    Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of our 2019 Grade 7 Students:

    We have been working tirelessly since June to provide our families with a full refund for the cancelled 7th grade trip to NYC. There have been countless phone calls to Maximum Tours to hasten this process. To date, we have been unable to obtain a refund. As a result, District Counsel will be issuing a letter on our behalf to help us secure a refund.

    We thank you in advance for your continued patience and understanding. We will keep you posted with any updates as they arise.

    Please feel free to contact my office with any questions.


    Bruce Hoffman, Ed.D.

    Site Based Letter and Application

    Dear Parents/Guardians:

    Each year our school Site-Based Committee has transitions due to expiration of terms.  During the 2020-2021 school year, both the Lincoln Orens Middle School and the Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School team will need parent members.  Lincoln Orens Middle School needs two parent members and Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School needs one parent member.  Please note that for the 2020-2021 school year, site-based meetings are being held virtually.

    The school district plan outlines the process for selection of members.  Parents interested in becoming members of the Site-Based Committee must complete the attached interest form.  We will then have a drawing for members at the virtual PTA meeting on October 8, 2020.

    If you wish to participate in the process, please complete the form and return it to the Office of the Superintendent. 

    Your continuing support is appreciated.

    Very truly yours,

    Vincent Randazzo
    Superintendent of Schools

    Student of the Month Reimagined

    Since the 2013-2014 school year, we have not changed the criteria for the selection of student of the month.

    We want to develop well-rounded students who are college and career ready with excellent academic opportunities through stellar programs.

    As we researched the attributes of the learners we are trying to develop, we found that they aligned with the IB Learner Profile.

  • Grade 8 Ceremony

    Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

    We are pleased to inform you that Lincoln Orens Middle School will hold a formal graduation ceremony for our Grade 8 students on August 6, 2020 (due to unforeseen circumstances, please note the date change). The ceremony will be held at Shell Creek Park, 1 Vanderbilt Ave, Island Park, NY 11558. In case of inclement weather, a rain date has been scheduled for August 7, 2020.

    As of June 7, 2020, in-person gatherings for the purposes of graduation ceremonies are restricted to a maximum of 150 individuals (including students, guests, teachers, administrators, and staff). Therefore, this year, we will conduct two ceremonies. The first ceremony will begin promptly at  9:30 a.m. Families are encouraged to arrive between 9:00 a.m. and 9:15 a.m.

    The second ceremony will begin promptly at 12:00 p.m. Please do not arrive any earlier than

    11:30 a.m. as our custodians need time to sanitize the area.

    The Center for Disease Control (CDC) protocols will be followed and all participants will be required to wear a mask. Social distancing will be in practice.

    - Please see the attached sheet for your child’s ceremony time.

    - Each graduate will be permitted to bring only two family members to the graduation.

    - Due to limited parking, only one car per family. Each family will receive a parking pass for your vehicle. Parking passes will be distributed with the graduation gown.

    - Upon arrival, students will be escorted to their seats and will sit together with their two family members in their assigned seats. (Please see attached.)

    - All 8th grade students should dress in light-weight clothing (under their gown.)

    - Graduation gowns will be available by way of curbside pick-up at the front entrance of Lincoln Orens Middle School on Wednesday, August 5, 2020, from 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. – 3:45 p.m.

    - All attendees at the gathering are required to remain six feet apart from other attendees at all times, excluding immediate family members.

    - All attendees at the gathering must wear a mask or face covering at all times. Note that students may temporarily remove their masks or face coverings while having their individual photo taken.

    - There must be no person-to-person contact during the ceremony. Individuals may not shake hands.

    - Diplomas will not be presented at the ceremony, but will be mailed home on August 7, 2020.

    - Due to the need for social distancing, families must immediately vacate the area and not remain in the park nor congregate after the ceremony.

    Your children have worked hard in Middle School and this ceremony celebrates the completion of their studies. Please support our efforts in maintaining a respectful and dignified tone by holding all applause until the conclusion of the program and refraining from other vocal gestures of enthusiasm. Your cooperation will assist us in moving the ceremony along and will also set an example for our students with regard to celebrating such an event properly.

    If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to call us at (434-2630).

    I am confident that our efforts will result in a memorable event and a wonderful conclusion to your child’s Middle School years. Thank you for your cooperation, support and assistance during these unprecedented times.


    Bruce Hoffman, Ed.D.
