• Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


    What if my child’s regular dismissal plans change?

    • If there are changes that need to be made to any day's dismissal plans this year, it will be necessary to e-mail Ms. Lorraine Cataldo in our Main Office @ lcataldo@greatneck.k12.ny.us. Please detail the change that needs to be made from your child's usual "going-home" plan in your email. For example: "John usually takes Bus 24 home, but he should be dismissed as a non-busser this afternoon." Ms. Cataldo will be confirming all requests by contacting the e-mail's sender via the telephone number listed on your child's school records/emergency contact card.

    What if my child loses a personal item?

    • Please label all belongings. There will be no lost and found this year, but labeled items will be returned.

    Where should I park when I visit Lakeville?

    What if I’m not fluent in English?
