Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

We have had a busy March at FJC. Spring chorus has begun. The second grade students are working with Ms. Kenwood and Mrs. Tripp to prepare for our FJC Spring Musical production. Garden Club and Craft Club are scheduled to begin this month. These clubs will keep our students motivated to continue being such eager and creative learners.

On March 24th from 2p.m. to 4p.m., the PTA hosted the seventh annual, second grade dance. The decorations were great, the parents and the second grade service squad worked very hard, their creativity transformed the cafeteria into an Under the Sea World. The students spent a very enjoyable afternoon dancing to the music and being with their friends.

Parent teacher conferences were streamlined due to inclement weather. It is always a pleasure to see parents in our building communicating with the teachers.

Our students thoroughly enjoyed seeing Aladdin Jr. performed by the Middle School drama students. Our little ones are the best audience!

We have our grade level science fair winners heading to the Brookhaven Science Fair. Good luck to our scientists.
We look forward to having our incoming kindergarten students’ visit for kindergarten screening from April 23rd to the 27th.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed for warm, sunny weather this April. We hope you enjoy Spring Break the first week of April.

Respectfully,
Dr. Virginia Gibbons, Principal FJC



Inclement Weather
When school is closed due to inclement weather, bad road conditions, or other emergencies, please listen to one of the following radio/TV stations for the announcements regarding Rocky Point Schools:
WALK Storm Center 97.5 FM WBLI /WBAB Storm Center 106.1 FM WRCN 103.9 FM NEWS 12 LI

Connect-ED
The Rocky Point Union Free School District uses Connect-ED, a school-to-parent telephone notification system, as part of our efforts to communicate more effectively with parents or guardians. Connect-ED will enable the Rocky Point Union Free School District to notify families immediately in the event of a snow day or school-wide emergency. The system can deliver up to 3,000 messages within minutes—ensuring that you quickly know what's going on. To receive these messages, FJC must have your up-to-date contact information. If you move, change jobs, or obtain a new cell phone number, be sure to log onto the eSchool Parent Portal to update your information so you won't miss a single Connect-ED message.

Two-Hour Delayed Opening
When road conditions in the early morning are hazardous but are expected to improve rapidly as the morning progresses, the District may utilize a two-hour delayed opening for all schools. Students will report to their bus stops exactly two hours later than they normally would. Dismissal for all schools will be at their normal times. This delayed opening may also be used for other emergencies. Notice of the delayed opening will be made as early as possible and broadcast on the listed radio stations and TV-Cablevision News 12 and the District's Connect-ED Telephone Notification System will be activated. In the event that we cannot transport students to school as a result of a “two-hour delayed opening” based on forecast predictions for improved weather and conditions by 7 AM, school officials will announce that schools will be closed. It is important that you continue to listen carefully for just such announcements.

Inclement Bus Stops
Inclement weather bus stops are available on the eSchool Parent Portal. Due to the geographic nature of our area, “inclement” weather stops will be utilized when adverse road conditions exist. At various times during the winter season, inclement weather bus stops will be used to ensure the safety of our student population. The use of these stops may be necessary at any time during the school day, without prior announcement. Parents should listen to the radio stations or call First Student Transit at 744-2204 if they have any questions regarding whether or not the Inclement Weather Bus Stops will be used. The district's voice mail will also have the announcement. Please make arrangements for someone to meet children at these alternate stops.
