Eighty of Wantagh High School’s most talented business students were inducted into the school’s chapter of the Business Honor Society as permanent and probationary members during a special ceremony in the auditorium. To qualify for membership, permanent members have taken at least three full credits in business courses and have maintained an average of 90 percent or greater while also fulfilling their community service requirement.
The district was notified today by the Department of Health that a student at the Wantagh High School has been diagnosed with pertussis, commonly referred to as "whooping cough." This exposure occurred during the period of April 23 to May 6. The student has fully recovered, is no longer contagious and has returned to school.
The Board of Education and central administration announced the tenure of 10 administrators and teachers during a reception with colleagues and family members that marked this most important milestone of their educational careers.
The district has appointed Jeanne Love as director of pupil personnel services for the 2016-2017 school year. Ms. Love, an Oakdale resident, joins Wantagh from the William Floyd School District, where she currently holds the position of assistant director of special education and formerly served as committee on special education chairperson and as a special education teacher from 2005-2015.
After exploring all other on site options, the decision has been made to move the high school graduation, normally held on the high school athletic field, to the Nassau Community College gymnasium. This indoor venue will easily accommodate our graduating class and guests.
Even though Punxsutawney Phil failed to see his shadow on Groundhog Day, administrators and teachers from the district’s three elementary schools happened to see the shadows of 32 enthusiastic high school students, who followed mentors throughout the school day.
