Local Firefighters Teach Valuable Lessons

Students at Ann MacArthur Primary School learned important fire safety tips straight from the experts – the Locust Valley firefighters.  Kindergarten students visited the local firehouse and were treated to tours of the fire trucks and other emergency vehicles. 

The children are now better prepared to handle an emergency situation with the tips the firefighters shared with them. Fire safety is part of the school’s curriculum and the trip to the firehouse reinforces the safety lessons they’ve already learned.

Ann MacArthur Primary School Principal Dr. Sophia Gary said the field trip helps the students remember what to do if they find themselves in a dangerous situation. “They remember the tips they received from their local heroes and because the visit is fun, the memories last a long time.”

Districtwide Fundraiser for Hurricane Victims

Students display items collected.

Throughout the district, students and staff have come together to help the victims of recent hurricanes. At the middle school and high school, the student government officers organized a drive for the month of September. Cash donations collected will be given to Island Harvest for distribution to victims. Staff members at both schools have the option of making a donation for the right to wear jeans on Fridays throughout the month.

Each of the elementary schools held a drive for supplies during the week of Sept. 11. Through the generosity of many families and staff members, batteries, canned goods, cleaning supplies, flashlights and personal hygiene items were among the items collected.Anyone wishing to donate may send cash or check (made payable to LVCSD) to the high school main office by Sept. 29. For more information, please email high school Assistant Principal Lisa Czerniecki at
