A Message from the Supervisor

“Welcome to Islip, the 3rd largest town in New York State, but with an endearing small town feel. We are so proud of our town…our beaches, golf courses, marinas, parks, housing opportunities for all, businesses, industrial parks, healthcare and educational institutions including our own Islip MacArthur Airport that provides many job opportunities. I sincerely hope you find this website helpful.” - Angie

5th grade teachers on students lawn with signs

May 14th, 2020 Tuesday would have been the Manetuck Elementary School's Class of 2020 5th grade final class trip.

Unfortunately, as is the case with so many milestones, the event was canceled in order to protect the public's health during the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, three 5th grade teachers, Karen Desz, Greg Schmalenberger and Sue Marullo bought lawn signs, and visited the homes of all 69 West Islip students.

"This is a heart-warming example of the bond teachers have with their students. The kindness they showed in recognizing each and every student brought smiles to everyone's face," said Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter.
All 69 students received a Manetuck Elementary School 2020 Graduate lawn sign.

Congratulations to the Manetuck Class of 2020! We know you'll accomplish great things in life.
