Copiague School District welcomed back staff and faculty members for the 2021-2022 school year during Superintendent’s Conference Day, held in three sessions on Sept. 1.

Faculty, staff, central office administration and board of education members gathered to celebrate the start of the new school year. Fifty new staff members have joined the Copiague Schools team for this year.

Board of Education President Brian J. Sales thanked the staff for their hard work and dedication. He then played a slideshow featuring highlights of the Copiague School District to remind everyone of the many successes during the past year. “Everyone’s efforts – big and small – contribute to our students’ success,” he said.

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Bannon added to those sentiments. “You have all gone above and beyond to provide the best for each of our students,” she said. Dr. Bannon also shared some of the projects the district is working on with the additional funding received. The district has three years to spend the funds and will address topics such as literacy development, extended learning, social-emotional learning, college and career readiness, visual and performing arts and more.

Dr. Bannon, along with Assistant Superintendent of Human Services Todd Andrews, acknowledged and congratulated those staff members who celebrated 20, 25 or 30 year milestones. Staff members returned to their respective buildings to prepare for the start of the school year.
