Sad News
We are deeply saddened to inform you of the passing of one of our grade eight students. The Middle School has been, and will continue to, support students affected by this news. Further, Mr. Larson, Principal, has made an announcement to the school at large.

Counselors are on hand for staff and students today at all schools and the Counseling Center at Commack Middle School will be open tomorrow (Saturday, December 15th) from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. Students and families in need of support are welcome to visit CMS during the times noted above. 

Out of respect for the wishes of the family, no further information will be released about the student without their consent.  Thank you for your understanding.  “At this difficult time, we keep this young man and his family in our prayers as we grieve as a school community and collective Commack family,” shared Dr. James.

A Note of Thanks to our Volunteer First Responders
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of Commack Volunteer Ambulance Corps for all their help at Sawmill School yesterday.  They responded promptly and provided expert and compassionate care to our students. In yesterday’s informational postings regarding the incident, we failed to identify them as the emergency medical responders. 
We would also like to thank the members of the Commack Volunteer Fire Department who responded to our district today when we were faced with another challenging situation.  Their quick response and professionalism put everyone involved at ease.

Our community is truly fortunate to have men and women who volunteer their time and talents to keep us safe and are always on call and at the ready.  
PTA logo Founders Day Honorees and Dinner Invitation
Each February, PTAs throughout the United States commemorate the day when the PTA idea took on the force and vitality of a nationwide movement.  In 1897, Alice McClellan Birney and Phoebe Apperson Hearst called together some 2,000 persons to “discuss questions most vital to the welfare of the children…”  That meeting, held in Washington, D.C., brought into being a national organization dedicated to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children in the home, school and community. Not only does our annual Founders Day Celebration help us honor our PTA founders, but it also affords the Commack PTA Units and Council the opportunity to honor members of our community for their dedication to our children by presenting them with State PTA awards. Please click here for the names of our honorees, and the dinner reservation form.
AP District Honor Roll Commack Named an AP Honor Roll District
Commack High School was named to College Board’s Advanced Placement (AP) District Honor Roll for its commitment to providing students with the access and opportunity to enroll in AP courses. College Board recognized only 373 school districts in the U.S. and Canada for increasing access to AP coursework while maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams. This is the second time since 2010 that the College Board has recognized Commack. Reaching these goals shows that Commack is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for AP. “This is another testament to our dedication and commitment to our ‘Access and Opportunity’ philosophy, which allows all students to access, higher-level courses of interest,” said Dr. James, Superintendent of Commack School District. But there's so much more we offer! Just click the title to read all about our Access and Opportunity initiatives.
