Start of Year – Transportation Information

The district looks forward to welcoming our students back to school on Tuesday, Sept. 6. Due to the expansion of the transportation policy this year to benefit all families, we encourage all parents and students to be mindful of the possibility of transportation delays during the first week of school as our drivers familiarize themselves with new bus routes. In addition to the stops that have been added for the 2016-17 school year, we traditionally find this week to be an adjustment period for families sending their children to school for the first time, as well as those looking to preserve the memorable experience on camera. The district appreciates your patience and understanding as we work to ensure the smoothest and safest start to the new school year.

District Teachers and Staff Can Now Access Safety Plans On Their Mobile Devices

Three Village Central School District Teachers and Staff Can Now Access Safety Plans On Their Mobile Devices 


District Increases Communication, Access and Flexibility for Emergency Plans and Event Safety Procedures with SchoolDude Crisis Manager


 SchoolDude, a Dude Solutions company and leading provider of education operations management solutions, today announced that Three Village Central School District, in Long Island, N.Y., is using its mobile safety platform CrisisManager. With the mobile app, the school district can dynamically share emergency protocols and event safety procedures with faculty, staff, parents, students and first responders. 


Previously using paper-based safety materials and flip charts to communicate emergency plans, CrisisManager ensures Three Village Central School District’s procedures are updated and accurate for its more than 7,000 students across nine K-12 school buildings. Detailed plans are provided on the mobile app for inclement weather, violent incidents, medical emergencies, evacuation procedures and other crisis situations.


“We are committed to providing a secure environment for students, staff and visitors on our school grounds and offering the most up-to-date safety information,” said Jack Blaum, Safety and Security Coordinator at Three Village Central School District. “Making critical procedures, including post-incident response plans, available on mobile devices helps our school community prepare for any emergency.”


Each safety plan is building-specific and tailored for an individual’s specific responsibilities or needs. General guidelines for how to handle a lockdown, evacuation or medical emergency, as well as incident reporting features, are also available. 


For special events like prom and graduation, Three Village Central School District is using CrisisManager to help make safety procedures readily available.


“Providing special event plans via CrisisManager helps us quickly communicate where faculty should direct attendees to go during an emergency, what radio frequency to use with first responders, and more. Previously, we gave large paper packets of event guidelines to faculty and volunteers, which was not conducive to event environments,” added Blaum.

Champions on the Green

Ward Melville High School’s varsity golf team scored a hole in one this season as they were named Suffolk County and Long Island Team Champions for the second consecutive year.

In addition to this group accomplishment, Gerald Mackedon was named the Boys Golf Individual Suffolk County Champion and was the runner-up at the state championship by one stroke.

Pre-K Expanded for 2016-17


Enrollment in the SCOPE at Three Village Pre-kindergarten Program, which is housed at Nassakeag Elementary School, has commenced for the 2016-17 school year. The program began in the 2015-16 school year and will be expanded for 2016-17 to not only include a 4-year-old program but also a 3-year-old program.

The 4-year-old program will run five days a week, for a half-day session (2.5 hours) at a cost of $300 per month. The 3-year-old program will run three days a week, also for a half-day session at a cost of $215 per month.

Each of the classes will be staffed by a NYS Certified teacher and teaching assistant. In addition to the daily staff, special education instructional teachers, an occupational therapist and a speech therapist will assist students requiring additional support. Classrooms are fully equipped with interactive whiteboard and SMART Board tables, in addition to the academic materials, which enhance lessons and playtime.

Both programs, engage students in a play-based pre-K activities that infuse the NYS Prekindergarten Foundations for the Common Core into their daily instruction to ensure the development of necessary social and academic skills. Teachers use a balanced literacy approach to reading instruction, including guided reading groups for students who are ready to read and small writing groups for students to begin to develop their ideas through pictures and print.

Socially, the classroom teachers provide many opportunities for group play each day. The students will participate in morning meetings, small group instruction and independent play, where they begin to navigate new friendships.

Throughout the course of the year, there are many opportunities for the students to be exposed to various aspects of the Three Village community on the building level and beyond. Last year, students participated in all appropriate cultural arts programs including plays, musical performances by Nassakeag students and visits from the local fire department, police department and Stony Brook EMS. The classes took one field trip to Benner’s Farm, where they learned about local animals and plants.
