Dear Parents and Community Members,

As promised earlier, and with a heavy heart, I am forwarding the arrangements for Taylor Cavaliere:

The wake will be held on Tuesday, April 19, 2011, at the Commack Abbey from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm.  The funeral will be on Wednesday at the Commack Abbey beginning at 10am.  The burial will follow immediately at Saint Charles Cemetery in Farmingdale.

There is no doubt that this is a difficult time for many, and we will do whatever possible to support those in need.  Certainly, grief counseling will be available once school re-opens.  In the interim, should anyone need our support, students, parents, staff, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at djames@commack.k12.ny.us  or Mrs. Nolan at cnolan@commack.k12.ny.us .

Donald James
Superintendent, Commack Schools
