With the surge of new mandates imposed by New York state on school districts over recent years, many additional tasks have been required of school officials. In order for Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School to properly meet these new requirements, the Board of Education recently voted to appoint an associate principal at the high school.
On Aug. 14, the Plainview Water District will hold a public information meeting to discuss its efforts to clean up a gasoline spill at the former Mobil station, located at 1101 Old Country Road, that is contaminated with MTBE. The district operates a supply well approximately 450' away from the spill. The well is currently completely free of MTBE contamination, but will become polluted unless the spill is promptly cleaned up.
