Student Health and Weight Status Reporting Survey - January 2020

Each year, the New York State Department of Health notifies a sample of public school districts to report the student weight status category and health conditions of children attending schools, i.e. Body Mass Index (BMI).  BMI is a part of the required school health examination and is referenced to assess the prevalence of childhood obesity.  This school year, South Huntington School District was selected to collect this information in grade levels PreK, K, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11 from the previous school year (2018).  This information will be submitted to the NYSDOH by January 30, 2020.  No personal identifying information about individual students will be included in this survey.  Parents/guardians, if you want your child's information to be excluded from the survey then contact the school nurse by January 2, 2020.  For more information about this reporting requirement, click here

95th Anniversary of SHUFSD

Today, December 10, 2019, is the 95th anniversary of the establishment of the South Huntington Union Free School District.  As such, under the Board of Education Tab, select HISTORY OF SOUTH HUNTINGTON SCHOOLS, for information pertaining to this moment in time, as well as the “History of Growth of South Huntington Schools” prepared back in 1964, and an update from the 75th anniversary in 1999.   It is our intent to provide photographs of interesting artifacts and enhance the concept from this point forward.

 

Our South Huntington School District has a vibrant, rich history, and we hope that you will enjoy reading about our beginnings and look forward to our bright future.

 

At our Board meeting tomorrow, December 11 at the Maplewood Intermediate School, the Board of Education will have the opportunity to recognize these 95 years.  Please feel free to attend this meeting and celebrate our past, as well as our District’s future.
