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.
