Superintendent's Message




Dear Members of the Carle Place Community:

I hope this note finds you and your family safe and healthy. We have all experienced many stressors in the last several months and have had to become more adaptable than ever before. We thank you for your continued patience as the Board, administration and I continue to navigate an unprecedented and unconventional start to the 2020 - 2021 school year.

The Carle Place community is a special one, and I know our spirit is strong. Despite the uncertainty of it all, I am proud to have served as your superintendent during this time. I have seen generosity and compassion, patience and understanding, and perseverance in the face of adversity like never before.

The coming year will likely continue to be "different” and we will continue to adapt to ensure our students thrive socially, emotionally, physically and academically. We urge you to take advantage of the many resources available to our students and to contact your building principal for any assistance in getting your child any additional support they may need during this time. More information, resources and letters from me can also be found on our newly redesigned website at

We look forward to seeing our community through another year. Thank you again for your overwhelming support of our schools.


Christine A. Finn, Ed.D.
