In order to expedite the ability of school-related parent organizations to communicate electronically during this 2013-2014 school year, the Great Neck Public Schools Board of Education revised its Policy on Student Records. The one-reading policy revision is in accordance with the school district Policy on Board Policy Development and was approved at the Oct. 21 public action meeting.
This revision addresses the identification of directory information that the school district will release to school related parent organizations and other organizations approved by the superintendent of schools to conform with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. It also describes the parameters by which such organizations can use this information.
The long-running plan for Kings Point Gate Association to tear down the rent-stabilized apartment complex at Academy Gardens at 794 Middle Neck Road in the Village of Great Neck and rebuild has now taken yet a new turn. The original plan’s height variance was turned down in 2007, but the concept resurfaced this past fall when yet another plan was put forward, one that needed no variances. And now, according to Fred Pollack, the pro bono attorney representing the working class families living at Academy Gardens, the residents are no longer being offered options, but are being told to accept a specific stipend and move out.

When sisters Adeena Sussman and Sharon Wieder faced the death of their mom from ovarian cancer, they wanted to develop a charitable memorial that expressed who she was in life. Since she had been a great cook and baker, and because Thanksgiving was one of her favorite holidays, Pies for Prevention was born.
Adeena and Sharon began baking Thanksgiving pies, which they sold to friends and community residents. The pie sale proceeds went to the Stephanie Sussman and Ann Nadrich Memorial Fund at Sharsheret, in memory of their mother and grandmother. Sharsheret, which provides a lifeline of education and support for young Jewish women with breast cancer, was thereby able to develop educational materials and programming for Jewish women facing ovarian cancer and their families.
