Transportation Update for Tuesday, August 15
Due to the limited parking at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church, the district will open up Sachem High School North for additional parking. There will be three buses that will make round trips from Sachem High School North to the church located in Lake Ronkonkoma. Busing will begin at 8:30 a.m. and will continue to run until the Mass concludes and all parties are successfully back at North. Security will be on-hand at the school to ensure there are no issues with parking.
We would like to thank the Towne Bus, LLC for their generous donation of these buses. Our continued thoughts and condolences are with the family and loved ones during this difficult time.
Dear Sachem Families,
Yesterday our community suffered a great loss, one that will forever stay in our hearts. Out of respect for the family and loved ones, all football related activities, at Sachem High School North and East, will be cancelled on Monday, August 14 as well as Tuesday, August 15.We will make an update on Tuesday regarding the football schedule for the rest of the week.
As a reminder, all school and community based activities will remain cancelled districtwide throughout the weekend.
As our community begins to heal from this tragedy, we will continue to offer support services for those in need. The district continues to extend its condolences to the family and loved ones during this difficult time.
We are Sachem.
