Dear District 24 Community:

We are pleased to see the community support for quality education as shown by the recent budget vote.  This will allow us to continue to offer the programs of excellence that make Valley Stream School District 24 a desirable environment for learning and living.

Our District is a one in which all children are able to achieve the highest level of educational success while enjoying their educational experience.   To a large extent, the District’s success is supported by active involvement of the parents and guardians, both, as individuals and members of the PTA, and through community support.  Throughout this year, as in the past, you have demonstrated the true meaning of a partnership between home and school. 

There is a Work Session meeting on June 14th at 7:00 PM, followed the regular Board meeting at 7:30 PM.  Student Awards will be presented at the beginning of this meeting. 

Please remember that there will be a half day of school for students on Thursday, June 15th.

Please note the following schedule for the week of June 19:  School will be in session for full days on June 19th, June 20th, and June 21st.  The last day of school is June 23rd.   Teachers will have a half day of school and students will be dismissed at 9:30 A.M.

Thank you for your support, and we look forward to continuing to work on behalf of all of our children next year. We extend our best wishes to the graduating class of 2017.
