2017 Bond Information
Approval of the Bond will allow the District to create 21st Century Programs and Facilities for our students and our community, with no additional property tax to residents. The approval of Propositions 1 and 2 will replace maturing debt from the 2002 bond, which is scheduled to be paid off in 2018. For up to date information on the proposed 2017 Bond, please click here.
The Hicksville Public Schools takes any allegations of bullying very seriously, investigates all reported claims and follows proper protocols under DASA. Our district is committed to providing a safe learning environment for all of its students and staff. In light of recent news, we thought it important for the community to know that we have a multifaceted program that strives to educate all students socially, emotionally and academically. Our staff continuously reinforces positive character development through its numerous districtwide anti-bullying programs and character education initiatives. Students who feel harassed or bullied, or who witness bullying, are urged to seek assistance from any teacher or staff member at any time. As the school community continues to mourn the loss of Angelo Collazo, we again extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends. Support services will remain available at the school for those in need.
On Thursday, October 17, 2017, Dr. Bonuso facilitated conversation about the upcoming Bond Vote in November. Energy and enthusiasm permeated the room as participants discussed the exciting plans for Hicksville’s schools and community. This popular series of Supe’s On conversations with the Superintendent and a small number of pre-registrants is designed to create opportunities to discuss important issues and ideas in a more personal, intimate, and informal setting.
Dr. Bonuso enjoys the first day of school with Ms. Dillon’s kindergarten class at Dutch Lane as Principal Ms. Strauss looks on.
Hicksville Middle School Student Council members and their advisors, Ms. Fitzgerald and Ms. Presti, decorated the front of the middle school in commemoration of Memorial Day and in recognition of the men and women who have served in our armed services and who continue to serve.
In addition to the van service (small bus) presently being provided, we have 16 additional large private and parochial bus routes being restored on Monday, November 27. Please check the links and listings below.
As previously reported, resumption of full bus service is expected by the beginning of the week of December 4. We, of course, will keep you posted via Robo calls and website updates. Extended hours of school operation will remain in place until the full restoration of bus service.
Please be reminded that the Hicksville Public Schools will be closed this Thursday and Friday, November 23 and 24th. As always, thank you for your ongoing support and cooperation. Best wishes for a safe and happy Thanksgiving to you and your family from the Hicksville School Family.
At its regular public meeting last night, the Hicksville Board of Education took action to restore bus transportation service to its students.

Information about restoration of specific routes during this transition period will be communicated through robocalls and posted on the District website. The District will continue to offer extended hours of operation until full bus services are restored.
