Message from the Principal

August 18, 2014

Dear High School Students and Parents:

Welcome to the start of the 2014-2015 school year!  I hope that this summer has been restful and that you are prepared for the challenges of the upcoming academic year.  Over the past two months we have been busy hiring new staff and working with our contractors to provide new and cutting edge instructional facilities for our students.  We are excited to welcome you back to a new school year filled with opportunities.

This summer we welcomed four new faculty members to Hampton Bays High School.  Mr. Andrew Arbocus will be our new Chemistry teacher and Mrs. Diane Fox will join our Social Studies department, instructing a number of courses including Global and United States History.  Ms. Meghan Cavanaugh, a Hampton Bays alumna, will join our English department teaching English 9 while Mrs. Maresca is on leave.  This year we will be offering a new culinary arts course, which is affiliated with Suffolk Community College’s Excelsior program.  This new course will be taught by Mr. Larry Weiss, who has extensive experience working in the food service industry and teaching at the college level.  Students enrolling in this new program will receive discounted college credits and a food preparation certificate.  

As you may know, the high school has undergone significant renovations this summer as part of the bond passed by the community nearly two years ago.  When we open our doors on September 3rd, students will benefit from new facilities in science, art and family and consumer science.  Additional upgrades have been made to the cafeteria, main lobby bathrooms, hallway showcases and lockers. As construction continues this fall, the high school will receive a new greenhouse, bleachers and a field house next to the track.  With these new facilities we will expand opportunities for students to gain career ready skills and credentials.  Additionally, we will expand opportunities for existing programs to grow.

With the start of a new year, I hope that all students take advantage of the opportunities presented to them at Hampton Bays High School.  During the 2014-2015 school year, we will offer more than twenty athletic teams and more than twenty co-curricular clubs and activities for students to showcase and develop their distinctive talents.  From Science Club to the Future Business Leaders of America, there is literally something for everyone.

Enclosed you will find important information regarding the opening of school.  Please review these documents carefully with your child.  Our first day of classes is Wednesday, September 3rd.  Please remember that school begins at 7:30 am.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at crichardt@hbschools.us or call the main office at (631)723-2110.

I hope that you enjoy the remaining days of summer and wish you success this school year.
