In colorfully decorated cars, trucks and vans, the members of the Ward Melville High School Class of 2020 kicked off the last month of their senior year during a commemorative parade in late May held in the school’s front bus circle. 

Escorted by proud family members, the students remained in their cars as they paraded through the parking lot, receiving cheers and words of praise from the teachers and staff remaining socially distant on the grounds. The event was filled with music performed by district teachers and included a grand entrance featuring the American flag, which was set up thanks to the Setauket Fire Department. 

The parade was highlighted on News 12 too! Click here to watch!

Update on Summer Programs/Offerings

As orders of social distancing currently remain in effect and, at this time, we do not know whether these guidelines will continue throughout the summer, the district has made the decision that the following programs will NOT be offered this summer. This decision was not arrived at lightly, but only after very careful consideration and thoughtful discussion.

Full and Half Day Summer Recreation Camp
Travel Camp
Patriot Pride Sport Camps
Community Swim
Drivers Education
Elementary Reading Program
Summer Enrichment Program

In addition, our auditoriums, fields, and gymnasiums will be closed to outside organizations.

At this time, no decision has been made about the Extended School Year (ESY) and ELL Jumpstart programs, as we are waiting for further guidance from the State.

The credit recovery program will continue to be offered, but will be exclusively on-line.

Update Regarding 2020 School Budget Vote

Pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Order 202.26, the annual budget vote and school board election has been scheduled for June 9, 2020, and will be held by absentee ballot only.

The public hearing on this year’s proposed budget will be held remotely on May 27, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. Information on how to access the hearing will be posted on the District website at

All qualified voters of the Three Village Central School District will be sent an absentee ballot together with a postage-paid return envelope and instructions for completing the same. To be counted, all completed absentee ballots must be received in the Office of the District Clerk by 5:00 p.m. on June 9, 2020.

A qualified voter is a person who is a citizen of the United States, at least eighteen years of age, a resident of the District for at least 30 days prior to the date of the election, and who is not otherwise ineligible to vote under the provisions of section 5-106 of the Election Law (e.g. a person who has been adjudged to be mentally incompetent by a court).

In light of the limitations posed by COVID-19, there will be no in-person voter registration held at school district offices prior to the June 9, 2020 vote. If you are not currently registered to vote, registration with the County Board of Elections is available online through the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles website at Those wishing to register online must do so by May 26, 2020.


Based on Executive Order 202.26 issued by the Governor, the date for the Budget Vote and School Board Election has been set for June 9, 2020. Candidates for the school board must submit a petition for office at least 30 days prior to the election. This means that petitions are due in the office of the District Clerk by May 11, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.

The need for signatures has been eliminated, but the petition must still indicate the name and address of the candidate and the vacancy for which the candidate is nominated. As our candidates run at large and not for specific seats, petitions should indicate “Office of Member of the Board of Education of the Three Village Central School District”.

Petitions may be dropped off with the Security Officer at the North Country Administrative Center, 100 Suffolk Avenue, Stony Brook, Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., mailed to the attention of the District Clerk to 100 Suffolk Avenue, Stony Brook NY 11790, or submitted via e-mail to
