Principal's Message

March 2021

Greetings Islip Middle School Families,

The days are becoming notably brighter and longer and the eagerness to get outside and take full advantage of the changing season is upon us. Especially when we consider where we were a year ago. We are all ready to reopen and get back to where we were before this all began. While we are not quite there yet, we will begin to return children to five day a week instruction. I am aware of the many mixed emotions with this process, but we continue to have health and safety in the forefront of our decision making. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this process in the best interest of all who enter the halls of Islip Middle School.

Here are some pointers as we phase in the reopening…

  • Grade levels are planned to return…
    • 6th grade, March 4 (Phase 1)
    • It is our hope that with a healthy and successful transition into and through Phase I that we will be able to transition into Phase II and Phase III of our “Re-Reopening Plan”. Phase II and III plan to welcome the students of the Class of 2025 (8th Grade) and the Class of 2026 (7th Grade) to return to five days of in-person instruction, joining their fellow schoolmates in grade 6.
  • Hybrid instruction will end. Students are either full in person attendance or full remote.
  • In regard to full in person attendance, students will be marked absent when not present. Only quarantine students can learn remotely.
  • Though the practice of maintaining 6 feet of social distance within all instructional spaces will not be possible during this transition, we are committed to ensuring that, when possible, we will continue to enforce 6 feet of social distance and implement additional health and safety barriers in certain instructional and non-instructional spaces.
  • Contact tracing will continue and close contacts will be quarantined as applicable.
  • Masks and temperature checks will be enforced for all students and staff upon entering.
  • Zero period Band, Orchestra, & Chorus will meet as full ensembles in current locations as each grade level returns. In the meantime, students should follow their cohort schedule.
  • Morning arrival will continue through the current grade specified entrances for temperature checks.
  • Upon entering
    • Team 6 Silver goes to lockers upon arrival
    • Team 6 Orange goes to period 1, then to lockers after first period
    • 7th & 8th grade students will go to their lockers and then directly to period 1.
    • It is important students do not congregate at their locker, in an effort to maintain social distancing. The plan is to continue this locker privilege, so cooperation is essential.
    • Students can use lockers during their team scheduled locker times only.
    • At this time, gym lockers will not be assigned.
    • Students and staff will continue to use up or down stairwell between classes.
    • Students will report to their assigned dining room and have the opportunity to choose their seat during the first week. After the first week, seating charts will be completed and students will remain in their chosen seat for the remainder of the year.
  • Dismissal times for the day…
    • 1st floor dismissal 2:24 p.m.
    • 2nd floor dismissal 2:25 p.m.
    • 3rd floor dismissal 2:26 p.m.

If the number of cases increase markedly. Our first priority is always the health and safety of all. Depending on the numbers, we may need to close buildings for ten days, and have all students learn remotely.

We look forward to seeing all of our students TOGETHER as soon as possible.

Remember to Look Good, Feel Good, and Do Good as you stay healthy and well.


Warm Regards,

Timothy P. Martin

Middle school student Gavin Connell recently found a heartwarming way to give back to his community, inspired by the TLC show “Extreme Couponing.” For four months during the height of the pandemic last year, the seventh grader and his mother Ilene Davidson collected coupons each week at CVS and used them to buy diapers and other baby supplies in bulk to donate to needy families via Fountainhead Congregation church ministry in East Northport.

Two middle school students – seventh grader Kieran Freelin and sixth grader Matthew Levy – joined forces to make handmade holiday ornaments over the winter break. They then held a donation drive, raising more than $700 to benefit Gavin’s Got Heart, a local charity that supports families with congenital heart defects.
