Important Information Regarding Delayed Openings,
Early Releases and School Closings

Dear Residents,

On behalf of the Board of Education, Leadership Team, Faculty and Staff, we are pleased to present our winter newsletter to all residents. This edition of Babylon Highlights celebrates many student accomplishments and further details progress on noteworthy district initiatives as we enter the second half of the school year. 
The first half of the school year embraced many examples of authentic learning taking place as well as many notable student achievements. Here are just a few examples:

  • Based on their achievements in the classroom, 33 Babylon Junior-Senior High School students were recognized as Advanced Placement Scholars by the College Board this past October.  

  • Students enrolled in Criminal Justice and Law and Order classes at Babylon Junior-Senior High School learned about the intricacies of the law during a recent in-school visitation with the newly appointed Suffolk County District Attorney, Timothy Sini. Mr. Sini, also a Babylon resident and parent, offered our students a firsthand glimpse into the highly sought-after career path. An engaging question-and-answer session between Mr. Sini and our students followed.  

  • The Babylon Junior-Senior High School Girls’ Varsity Soccer Team recently finished its incredibly successful season, receiving a number of awards and accolades not only for its athletic abilities, but also for its academic talents. The team was named Section XI Class B Champions, Long Island Class B Champions, and a New York State Academic Team of Distinction, and received the League VII Sportsmanship Award. Several Babylon Village representatives visited the team in January and offered their personal congratulations, including Babylon Mayor Ralph Scordino, Deputy Mayor Kevin Muldowney, Babylon Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer and Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez.

  • More student accolades and districtwide efforts defining “excellence” will continue to be recognized and celebrated as we move into this next phase of the academic year. With that, I would like to remind you of some important upcoming events taking place inside our schools.  

  • Notably, on Friday, March 2, Babylon Schools will host its Third Annual Legislative Advocacy Breakfast and Community Summit. This morning gathering is now an annual mainstay in Babylon in which our legislative representatives, community partners and educators come together to advocate for fair funding of our public schools.  

  • Kindergarten registration for students turning 5 years old on or before Dec. 1, 2018, takes place at the Babylon Elementary School on Wednesday, March 14 and Wednesday, March 21. Please refer to the district calendar and/or the district website for further information as well as the necessary documentation required to present at registration.

  • Save the date for our spring musical, Legally Blonde, set to take the stage on Friday, March 23 through Sunday, March 25. The curtains rise at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights and at 2 p.m. on Sunday.  


As I close on this midyear message, please know we value your unwavering support and strong partnership in the education of our students. Together, we continue to make a difference.
