As part of its celebration of Read Across America Day on March 2, the Hicksville Congress of Teachers in collaboration with the Hicksville Public Schools hosted a fun and educational slate of activities for students and their families in the new Parent Center. The event was made possible by a grant from the state and national teacher’s union affiliates, NYSUT and NEA/AFT. The event featured read-alongs and the opportunity for families to select books to take home with them and also take photos with Hicksville Congress of Teachers President Tom Glenn, who was dressed as Dr. Seuss’ iconic character The Cat in the Hat. The well-attended program was designed to continue reinforcing the importance of reading to students across all grade levels.

Please note that this “Snow Contingency Day” is indicated on the school calendar.
Therefore, the Spring Recess will begin on Friday, March 30 and end on Friday, April 6 with students returning to school on Monday April 9.
Additionally, in order to meet this 180 day requirement, the District will be holding a Superintendents Conference Day, for faculty and staff only, later in June.
We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together to meet the challenges of this winter season.
