Community Information Meeting

The Syosset Central School District will be hosting an additional informational community meeting regarding the upcoming Facilities Improvement Vote at the Syosset Public Library on Friday, January 26, 2018 at 10:30 a.m.

The Syosset Public Library is located at 225 S. Oyster Bay Road, Syosset.


Syosset board of education adopts resolutions and sets bond vote for Tuesday, February 13, 2018 

During its Dec. 11 business meeting, the Syosset Central School District Board of Education approved a resolution to submit to community residents two propositions to modernize the District’s aging facilities. A bond referendum (known as Proposition No. 1) would make capital and safety improvements to every building. A second proposition (known as Proposition No. 2) would make safety and energy efficiency improvements to every building.  A public vote on both propositions will be held on Tuesday, February 13, 2018.

Prior to the meeting on Dec. 11,  District Administration hosted several community facilities planning meetings, where residents had the opportunity to learn about the proposed scope of work and to provide feedback. The Board of Education took this feedback into consideration before finalizing the scope of work included in Proposition 1.

All of the District’s schools were constructed in the 1950’s, meaning that some buildings will be nearly 70 years old by the time this work begins. The propositions are part of the long-term District strategy to address facilities needs that began with a successful referendum for Phase I in May of 2017. The two propositions on the February ballot, represent Phase 2 of the work needed to remedy the District’s five-year building condition survey of needed repairs and renovations. Phase 2 will also address traffic and safety condition improvements, renovations to instructional spaces and athletic fields, and HVAC systems and electrical upgrades. 

The total cost of Proposition No. 1 is $45,810,000. To offset the cost, the district will expend $11,464,500 in Capital Reserve Fund monies, which will reduce the maximum cost of Proposition No. 1 to $34,345,500. If approved by voters, a homeowner currently paying $10,000/year in school taxes would see an annual increase of approximately $20.65.  

Proposition No. 2, if approved, will authorize the District to enter into an energy performance contract to make energy efficiency improvements to District buildings and facilities including: furnace replacements and heating and ventilation system upgrades, solar power, energy management systems, electrical co-generation, lighting upgrades and replacements, ceiling replacements and other energy conservation measures. 

Voting will take place on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 from 6 a.m. – 9 p.m. at Robbins Lane Elementary School, H.B. Thompson Middle School and Syosset High School. Prior to the vote, the District is planning to host community information meetings and provide more information regarding both propositions to enable community residents to make an informed decision on February 13, 2018.

To help make the holidays a little bit brighter for other young students, the Robbins Lane School Student Council organized a toy drive to collect new toys for the Hance Family Foundation. Four large cartons of toys donated by Robbins Lane families were sent to underprivileged children through their schools via the foundation. 

“We feel privileged to be able to provide toys for many children who otherwise would not be receiving anything,” said Robbins Lane enrichment specialist Robin Kleinman. “We would like to thank the Robbins Lane community for helping to make our fundraising drives so very successful. We wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year!"
