Dear Valley Stream Community:
As the holiday break quickly approaches, the Board of Education and I would like to wish all of you a happy, healthy and safe vacation. Our students, staff, faculty, and District families have worked incredibly hard to make the first half of the school year a resounding success, and this break is a well-deserved reprieve to spend time with loved ones.
Thank you to our students, staff and faculty for making these first several months of the school year a testament to what our District is capable of both academically and personally. Everywhere we look, displays of kindness, compassion, and camaraderie can be seen, sustaining our efforts to keep pushing forward through every obstacle. We are so grateful to our community for its support and active engagement in the learning process of our students. Our continued success is only possible through continued collaboration.
Keeping in mind that Covid-19 cases in our community and around the world are on the rise once more, the best gift that we can give one another is the gift of responsibility and care as we celebrate the holidays. It is on each of us to do our part to keep one another safe so that we may all have a peaceful break and ring in the New Year feeling our best and with optimism for the future.
Once again, we wish all of you a happy and healthy holiday vacation as you enjoy some hard-earned rest and relaxation. We are so excited to welcome you back in 2022!
Stay safe, and be merry.
Dr. Wayne Loper, Acting Superintendent of Schools
The Valley Stream Central High School District Board of Education
