Dear Members of the Locust Valley High School Community:
Congratulations to all students, staff, and the community on a fine past academic year and a summer hopefully filled with the right balance of enjoyment and relaxation. My name is Patrick DiClemente and I am fortunate to have been recently named the Principal of Locust Valley High School. The Locust Valley School District is an outstanding place to receive an education, grow and learn as a resident, and to be an educator. The community has always maintained a pride in its people, heritage, and accomplishments. I am very excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for me as the high school principal and eager to be a part of the outstanding student achievement, activities, and culture among all of our schools.
With over twenty years of secondary school experiences as a teacher of English and school administrator, you will find me well-versed in the elements that coincide with student success at the high school level. I am passionate about the field of education and working with people. As the high school principal, I appreciate the opportunity that I have to support and celebrate our students, to work among a talented and dedicated staff, and to collaborate with families and community members.
Our efforts at Locust Valley High School and my focus is on providing a challenging, inviting, and supportive school experience for the students and all individuals associated with our school. We will continue to build upon the positive-spirit at school, work to recognize success, and expand learning for all of our students and staff. Students, staff, parents, and community members are the spirit of our school. Please know that my door is always open to you.
In the remaining summer vacation days, I wish all of our students and families fulfillment and enjoyment. As we draw closer to a new academic year, you will receive a welcome letter with coordinating information that will support a smooth, confident beginning to the 2018 - 2019 school year. I thank all members of the school community for welcoming me to Locust Valley.
Patrick J. DiClemente
