Proactive measures and protocols were on the agenda for the faculty, staff and administrators during Superintendent’s Conference Days.

After a welcome by Superintendent Dr. Paul Casciano and Board of Education President Kathleen Brennan, staff members took part in numerous workshops that reflected on the theme of “Keeping Our Students and Staff Safe.”

Guest speakers from the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department, the Port Jefferson Volunteer Ambulance Corps and the Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence were in attendance to lead the Port Jefferson educational community in procedures and actions to enhance the security and protection of all who enter the district buildings.

The two-day conference also featured a mindfulness lesson with high school teacher Dawn DeLeonardis, as well as planning and collaboration among faculty members and administrators.
