LV Firefighters Reinforce Safety Tips

Ann MacArthur Primary School students visited the Locust Valley Fire Department during Fire Safety Month for a reminder of fire safety tips. The members of the fire department welcomed the students with open arms, showing them the apparatus used in emergencies and sharing a child friendly film on fire safety that had a catchy tune the children were singing along with. Juice and cookies were an added bonus and the children and teachers were grateful for the hospitality. 

Thank you to the members of the Locust Valley Fire Department for reinforcing the concepts of having an emergency plan, a meeting place, staying low to the ground and so much more. The children will definitely remember to call 9-1-1 in an emergency!

Building Relationships Through Bilingual Nights

The community came together as more than 125 parents attended the district’s bilingual event, held over two nights for Spanish-speaking families from all of the LVCSD schools.

Organized and facilitated by Cyndy Ergen, a teaching assistant at Locust Valley Intermediate School, the event provided parents with helpful information to ensure that their children succeed in school. Ms. Ergen, who translates many district documents into Spanish for non-English-speaking families, shared the district calendar, important phone numbers and many helpful tips that would not only benefit students, but help parents and guardians feel more comfortable being part of the LVCSD community.  

Several district administrators and building faculty members were introduced, shared information about their departments and made the attendees feel comfortable by speaking in their native language and reminding them that the district will assist them in any way possible.

Ms. Ergen has been running this event for five years and said the Spanish-speaking community is appreciative that the information shared allows them to become more involved in the education of their children.

“Many of these families want to be more involved but don’t know how,” Ms. Ergen said. “By showing them where to find information, how to view the website in their own language and who to contact for various topics, they now feel more comfortable.”

Interim Superintendent of Schools, Thomas P. Dolan, Ed.D., said bilingual nights are important events that helps build bridges to connect all facets of the community. “When we work to make the entire community feel welcome, it benefits all of our students,” he said.

Ms. Ergen wishes to thank the school staff members and representatives from outside organizations that assisted in making the bilingual nights a success.
