  • Travel Advisory

    Dear Parents and Staff Members:

    Effective 12:01am on Thursday, June 25, 2020, Governor Cuomo issued Executive Order 205 that requires individuals to quarantine for 14 days after traveling for 24 hours or longer within designated states that have significant rates of transmission of COVID-19. Guidance was also issued by the New York State Department of Health. Since New York has successfully reduced COVID-19 transmission, vigilance must be maintained to ensure that New York does not see a surge in new cases from states with increasing community transmission of COVID-19.

    Summation: If you have traveled from within one of the designated states with significant community spread, you must quarantine when you enter New York for 14 days from the last travel within such designated state, provided on the date you enter into New York State that such state met the criteria for requiring such quarantine.

A Message from Our Principal

 Mr. Kevin Bracht, Principal 

Welcome to Walnut Street Elementary School where every student's educational, social and emotional needs are always our first priority. We hope that you will access these web pages to obtain the latest information concerning the programs and activities of our school. We will also be highlighting some of our students' and staff achievements throughout the year.

This is my fifth year as Principal of Walnut Street School. I have been at Walnut Street for the last twenty one  years as a teacher and Assistant Principal. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 516-918-2201.

From the Desk of our Assistant Principal

 Dr. Frantz Dorsainvil, Assistant Principal 
Welcome back to another exciting school year! I am excited to be the Assistant Principal at Walnut Street School. I am looking forward to working with you and your children during this school year. Parents, you are the difference, get involved and stay involved, join the PTA! 
I began my career as a substitute teacher. Since then I have taught 5th and 6th grade for fourteen years at California Avenue School. Most recently, I worked as a School Counselor at Uniondale High School for five years. I have earned my doctorate degree in Educational Leadership from Dowling College. I hold a master's degree in School Guidance Counseling from Long Island University, C.W. Post, and a master's degree in School Administration and Supervision from the College of New Rochelle. I earned a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and discovered my passion for education at State University of New York College at Old Westbury.

Vision Statement

The increasing level of diversity in American society makes it necessary for individuals to broaden their understanding and acceptance of similarities and differences. Contributing members of society will be expected to use a myriad of technological, social, economic, political, and academic skills to problem solve, make decisions, and cope. Schools have a major role in helping to build and refine the skills individuals need to function in the complex and multi-faceted society of the future. 

Mission Statement

Uniondale School District recognizes that all children are unique and must be guided to realize their full academic and social potential in a secure and stimulating environment. 

Therefore, the Uniondale School District, its Board of Education, staff, students, parents, and community members, as stakeholders in the shared decision-making process, is committed to developing educational excellence and will ensure that students:

  1. Are provided with a rigorous education that will prepare them to become problem-solvers, users of technology, and literate, productive citizens in a mosaic society.
  2. Are challenged intellectually and academically in a stimulating environment in which high expectations and a passion for learning are priorities. 
  3. Work and learn in a safe and secure environment.
  4. Develop and practice respect for cultural diversity and character..
  5. Are given the opportunity to develop character and enhance their self-esteem.
  6. Develop and practice respect for themselves, their peers, the Staff, the educational setting, and the broader community.
