Fundraisers Support Local Autism Efforts

Throughout the school year, the district participated in various autism awareness fundraisers. This year, the district made a donation of $1,450 to support the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office Project Lifesaver. This program provides wristband technology that can be worn by individuals with cognitive impairments who may wander. This will allow the sheriff’s office to track them if they ever wander or get lost.
