Ongoing Budget Review
In the ongoing effort by the board and administration to make the budget more transparent three departments presented their direct costs to the community at the board of education meeting held March 3. One, athletics, appeared in the last issue of the Manhasset Press, and this week the direct costs for special education were detailed by Andrew P. Doro, interim director of special education and pupil services. The direct costs for psychology were set forth by Nancy Casella, assistant director of special education and pupil services. Guidance and counseling services, K-12, were presented by Kitty Klein, who came on board in July of 2004, and is the director of guidance and counseling.
Manhasset EOC and School District Form Liaison
Whether you have children in school or not, you may have heard that there have been a number of instances this year at the High School that have made us question whether or not all of our students do truly respect each other and the diversity that has made Manhasset a special place.

On The Bay
Sunday, March 13 was a great day to be outdoors; the sun was shining, the air was brisk with a slight hint of spring, and there was just enough wind to remind us that we still need to wear a hat to keep warm. Weather conditions were perfect for the eight teams gathered at the starting line for a day of good, competitive racing. And competitive it was. There was a tie for first place between Ralf Steitz/Jaime Gross and Ted Toombs/Matt Cornachio, with Ralf winning the tiebreaker with 4 aces to Ted's three. There was another tie for 6th and 7th race, too. The racing was so competitive that the Race Committee had one general recall when so many boats were over at the start that they was no way the over-early boats could be identified, and in another race three boats were over early.
