Principal's Message

April 2021

Greetings Islip Families,

A year ago, I mentioned living in a surreal situation. Who could have predicted the challenging journey we were about to embark. We have all been tested in many ways, and each family has had to toil through this crisis in the best way they knew how. Outside of school, we learned something new every day that never had any significance until this crisis. As much as we learned, we would like to now forget and simply move on. So, we are grateful for the progress made over the past year and we are excited about more opportunities opening up each week. There is an eagerness to get back to normal, but the masks on our faces remind us we are not quite there yet.

I realize there is confusion and mixed messages everywhere we turn. We can do things outside of school that we cannot do inside, and vice versa. For now, in IMS we will continue to make health and safety a priority. We will encourage all who walk through our halls to wear a mask, wash/sanitize their hands frequently, avoid milling about, walk with a purpose, and socially distance to the best of our ability.

Until next month, we wish you happy and healthy days.

Extending healthy thoughts from a friendly distance,

Dr. Timothy P. Martin

Sixth-graders in Cristina Guida’s and Laura Rondinella’s science classes at Islip Middle School were chosen to be “Kidcasters” for April 12 on radio station WBLI. The students were given the chance to forecast the weather for April 13 and each of the five classes was given a section of the weather broadcast to read.

“We just finished our unit on weather and thought this would be a great activity to show off what we learned,” Rondinella said. “The kids had a great time listening to themselves on the radio as well as seeing their final project. I hope everyone enjoys listening and seeing what our future can do. We may have some future meteorologists on our hands!”

Islip has been named one of the Best Communities for Music Education by the NAMM Foundation for the seventh consecutive year, recognizing the strength and depth of the school district’s music program.

“This honor is the result of hard work on the part of our music students and staff in conjunction with tremendous support from parents, school board members, administrators and the community at large,” said Brian Kroll, Islip’s director of fine and performing arts.

“What an accomplishment,” Superintendent Ellen Semel said. “It is a milestone to make the list, but to keep this going for seven years is outstanding.”
