Welcome Greenport Families, to a new school year!

The faculty, staff and I are excited to welcome you back to another great school year.  We hope that your summer has been filled with fun family activities while enjoying the wonderful sunshine.  How quickly summer concludes and our thoughts turn to preparing for the start of school.  This is always one of my favorite times of the year!  I love the excitement of beginning each new school year and eagerly await our students and hearing their great summer stories.  I am thrilled to be part of a team comprised of teachers, staff, parents and students who want to achieve great things! Our faculty, staff and I are looking forward to a new school year and are working hard to see that your child’s learning experience at Greenport Schools is a successful and happy one.

Your partnership and support are key elements to ensuring that we are able to maximize each student’s educational and personal development.  We encourage a positive home-school relationship based on the mutual goal of providing the best learning experience possible for all of our students.  Our talented faculty brings a diverse set of approaches to instruction.  You will have the opportunity to meet the faculty at our Back-To-School event on Thursday, September 24 at 6:30 p.m.  You will visit your child's classroom, begin to form a relationship with the classroom teacher, as well as learn about the grade level curriculum, specials, classroom technology, and activities. 

  • The first Day of School is Wednesday, September 9th.
  • Pre K & K Dismissal at 11:30 am for September 9th, 10th, & 11th.

All of these dates and more are on the Greenport Schools Website www.gufsd.org.  Please check the school calendar frequently for important dates throughout the school year. 

Over the summer our amazing custodial staff has worked hard to clean our school so it is ready for the arrival of our students.  The staff and I are eagerly waiting to welcome you to another wonderful school year and look forward to seeing families and students very soon!

If you have any questions please call me at 631-477-1950, ext. 1211 or contact me by email at:  tsaveras@gufsd.org

We wish you the best for a successful and rewarding school year!

Thank you for entrusting us with your children this year. We are honored to work in partnership with you to provide a positive school experience for each and every child.
