Orchestra and Band Virtual Performances

The Atkinson Intermediate School orchestra instructor, Mrs. Morales, and band instructor, Mr. Friedman have created two virtual performances featuring select members of their ensembles. The 6th grade string performance of “Jingle Bell Rock” was recorded by both remote and in-person students and the band performance of “Alien Invasion” was recorded by remote students with one special in-person student performance assisted by Mr. Federici. Please enjoy the hard work of these very talented students.

Grade 6 -12 Change of Instructional Mode Link

Dear Freeport Grade 6 – 12 Families,

 

As part of the District Reopening Plan, you were given the option to choose an In-person/Hybrid Learning Model or a fully Remote Learning Model for your child/children at the start of each marking period. This means that students who chose the Remote Learning Model may now return to the In-Person/Hybrid Learning Model and students who chose the In-Person/Hybrid Learning Model may choose to move to the Remote Learning Model. At this time, families of students in grades 6 - 12 may choose to change learning models. The change in your child’s learning model will occur on February 1st. Pre- K through grade 5 students will have this opportunity at the start of their next marking period in March. 

There is no action necessary on your part if you do not want a change of learning model. Please complete this form (https://forms.gle/yQpAmTbdh28ZBemL7)  only if you wish to change your child's instructional program. A form must be filled out for each child in your family requesting a change. For planning purposes, all forms must be returned by 5:00 PM on January 22nd. We will be unable to accept changes after this date. All changes to instructional programs will be in effect from February 1st through April 16th. In April, you will be given the next opportunity to change your child’s chosen learning model.

 

We appreciate your collaboration and support as we continue to provide our students with the best educational opportunities available. As we move forward with any new phase, we will continue to carefully follow all the required Department of Health guidelines. The health and safety of our students and staff is our first priority. Please remember M-S-W: Wear your Masks, Social distance, Wash Your Hands.

Freeport Public Schools Reflects on the Life of a Dedicated Educator

Freeport Public Schools Reflects on the Life of a Dedicated Educator

Freeport Public Schools is saddened at the passing of Robert Lordi, a teacher at Freeport High School, on December 27, 2020. On behalf of Freeport Public Schools, we offer our deepest condolences to his family.

Mr. Lordi began his career as a special education teacher in the social studies department at Freeport High School in 2001 and was a dedicated, caring educator who always went above and beyond for students and colleagues. In addition to providing instruction and academic support, Mr. Lordi was involved in coaching students in modified football and wrestling, and then continued to supervise sports events. He was a warm, caring person with a genuinely good heart who could always be counted on to step up and volunteer when needed.

“Our hearts are heavy with the passing of Robert Lordi. His devotion and caring for our students and their families was evident in all he did. Robert was part of the fabric that makes up our Freeport Public Schools family,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kishore Kuncham. “We celebrate his years with us. Robert will be remembered for his commitment, sense of humor, and kindness, which permeated his interactions with everyone, myself included.”

Colleagues who co-taught with Mr. Lordi felt their relationship went beyond sharing a classroom partnership. Their partnership became like a family, who could laugh together and finish each other’s sentences. Students loved being in Mr. Lordi’s classes and felt he made a lasting impact on their lives. “Robert Lordi will be sorely missed by his high school colleagues and students,” said Principal Joseph Mille. “He was warm and caring with his students. He made sure they were doing the best they could to reach their potential. He was an active member of our special education department and his colleagues enjoyed teaching and working with Robert over these years. He never failed to step up and help out where needed.”

Robert Lordi will be remembered as a dedicated educator, Changemaker,  helpful colleague, and loyal friend.  

 

In honor of Robert Lordi, the flags at the Administration Building and Freeport High School will be flown at half-mast on Wednesday, December 30th.
