Dear Parents and Guardians,

Earlier this afternoon, the district was made aware by the Amityville Village Police Department that an Amityville resident is a defendant in a criminal case for possession of images of child pornography. While this person has no affiliation with the district, our students or our staff, his residence is within close proximity to Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School. While the investigation is still ongoing, law enforcement officials have assured us that, at this time, there is no evidence to suggest that any of the district’s children are involved in this case. 

The district is in regular communication with the police department and will remain so during the duration of its investigation. The safety and security of our students is our top priority and I will keep you apprised of additional information, as it becomes available. 

As always, if you have any concerns and/or questions, please feel free to contact my office. Additionally, if you have any information regarding the ongoing police investigation, please contact the police department.

Yours truly,
Mary T. Kelly, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
