Daily Announcements

Dear Parents,

We live in a world surrounded by technology. We know that whatever field our students choose to pursue, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. However, only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and fewer students are studying it than a decade ago.

That’s why the Uniondale School District is joining in on the largest learning event in history,The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 8-14). Last year, 15 million students tried computer science in one week. This year, we're joining students worldwide to reach 100 million students!

Uniondale is introducing and teaching these foundational 21st century skills.  We are.planning an exciting week of code activities to promote the national program during the week of December 8.  A team of experts from Codescholarly will be coming to the elementary and middle schools to provide students with exposure to coding. Programming activities will take place in all high school math classes.  

See http://hourofcode.com/us for more information.

Safety First

One of our biggest priorities as parents and educators is ensuring the safety of our children.

Parents, please discuss the following safety reminders
with your children.

And students, please follow these guidelines carefully
every day.


·  NEVER WALK ALONE.  Always walk in groups of at least 2 or 3 students.
·  BE ALERT!  Be aware of your surroundings at all times (people, cars, bicycles).  ***Do not wear headphones or text while walking so that you can be sure to remain aware of your surroundings until you are safely in your house.


·  ESTABLISH A “SAFE HOUSE.”  Talk to neighbors and local businesses on your route to school and ask them if it okay to stay there in case of an emergency.

·  AVOID SHORTCUTS through desolate or abandoned areas.

·  NEVER, EVER accept a ride from people not arranged or approved by your parents.

·  PARENTS—make sure your children know your work and cellphone numbers.  Make a rule that they call you as soon as they arrive home after school.
