Principal’s Remarks

Gym floor is done! All-county concert NYSSMA currently going on. Mrs. Massimo then introduced Mr. Fenter. Dr. Bernhard, Mr. Bongino and Board of Education members A. Brogan, M. McAteer and L. Squicciarini.


CSH Athletic Center

Mr. Fenter made some opening remarks and then handed the floor to Mr. Bongino. Mr. Bongino stressed the importance of physical education on students well -being.


Dr. Bernhard then spoke about the financial implications – $4.8m bond maximum. Current interest on 20 year bond 3.5% (approx. $350k annually) which equates to approximately .57% increase in the tax levy or about $110 per taxpayer which will absorbed into the school budget at no additional cost to the taxpayer. (note: The school budget includes approx. $700k per year for capital expenditures which will now be reduced by the $350k interest payments – however the capital reserve fund has a current reserve of $1.9M which the school district feels is adequate to meet future capital expenditures and maintenance). The district’s current bond issue of will be paid off in 2022 resulting in positive cash flow 0f $3M to the district.
