Gallow Gets A New Lease

Last year, Nassau BOCES decided to close their special education preschool program at the Geneva N. Gallow School on Farmedge Road.  For 20 years, up until this year, Island Trees enjoyed our relationship with the Nassau BOCES Early Childhood Center.  After all, the Gallow School was occupied and used in a very positive manner: to educate children.  Naturally, the district was disappointed to lose this tenant, as well as the programs and services BOCES offered to Nassau County children.

 

Happily, we’re able to report that the district has found a new tenant for the Geneva N. Gallow School.  

 

On Wednesday, June 25, 2014, Variety Child Learning Center entered into a lease agreement for the Geneva N. Gallow School.  Variety Child Learning Center has provided special education and support services to Nassau County children and families for over 40 years.  Variety intends to expand their successful Syosset-based school programs at Gallow.  Fittingly, Variety Child Learning Center will utilize the school campus in the very manner intended when it was built in 1953.

 

Although the district explored other options for the Farmedge property, we never stopped seeking an occupant for Gallow.  

 

Fortunately, we found a tenant with an excellent reputation, one that hopes to build a long-lasting relationship with our school community.

Communities value their libraries, and at the Levittown Library, the library staff, in turn, truly appreciates their patrons. Employees at the Levittown Public Library, with a talent for knitting, demonstrate their commitment to the community’s teens by making “amigurumi”—small knitted or crocheted stuffed toys—for use in the reading program.
