Summer Playground Update - June 26, 2024

Dear Parents and Campers,
I will be posting periodic info or reminders about things regarding our summer playground program.  Don’t forget to print out a copy of the calendars that will be posted on our website under summer playground.  The calendars will let you know what important things are going on including a schedule of all summer activities.

Some reminders for now:

The first day of camp is July 1 at 9 a.m. and will end at noon. Please be on time for pick-up; we dismiss at noon.   We will be closed on July 4 and 5. Due to lighting construction at Marion Street, we will be at South Middle School for a period of approximately 6 days; I will advise parents about those particular dates as soon as I know.
Be certain to fill out the yellow emergency card that will be given to your child. Most important, if your child is to be picked up by someone other than a parent/guardian, please write a note to the head counselor of your child’s group allowing that person to pick up your child.

Drop off and pick up at West End is by the entrance gate near the children’s playground.

Drop off and pick up at Marion Street will be in the rear of the building facing the field.

On day 1 at Marion St., check the chart affixed to the rear fence near the playground and bring your child to the appropriate line for that group. Banners will be held up depicting the various groups. Pick up will be from the rear from those same lines. 
Bring any medicines, inhalers etc. to the nurse at that site. Campers should bring a peanut free snack every day and a couple of bottles of very cold water.  We do not serve breakfast or lunch. Sharing of food among campers is not permitted. We do not celebrate birthdays at camp. In the event of a pop-up shower during summer playground hours, campers will be indoors.

Please note that in the event of a closure due to weather or an emergency, you will receive a message (text) or a voicemail apprising you of closure.  You will not receive a parent link; the communication will come to you via our new Parent Square form of communication. 

We are fortunate to have two security guards at each site.  There will also be crossing guards at particular spots for the safety of the children.

Proper camp attire should be worn every day. I suggest shorts, tee-shirts, sneakers, and proper footwear if your child is running through the sprinklers. Wearing a baseball cap would be highly recommended. It does get hot.  No bare feet at any time. I discourage flip-flops. I encourage labeling bags, water bottles, towels. Campers should wear bathing suits under their shorts. Please pack a towel in your child’s knapsack if he/she intends to make use of the sprinklers. We will have sprinklers everyday between 10 and 11 weather permitting.

We do not apply sunscreen. Apply sunscreen at home. We do not put on or remove bathing suits.
Field trip monies are in cash only.  A $1 bus fee will also be separately collected. 
Depending on the heat index, children will be off the field or the turf and will take shelter in a cool spot or come indoors. Please do not bring your pets during drop off or pick up on school property.

If you need to contact the nurse or site supervisor, use the following site numbers:

Marion Street – 516-880-4397               

West End – 516-315-3759

If your child is late and the gate is locked, please call the supervisor at one of the above numbers and we will come and let your child in.
You can also email the supervisor if you have any concerns or questions:

West End –

Important Update: Lynbrook Summer Playground

This summer, the district will be installing lighting at Marion Street School. As a result, we will need to close off access to the field and playground for a few days at two separate times during the summer. On these days, we will need to conduct the Summer Playground at South Middle School instead of Marion Street. Since the dates of installation revolve around the weather and the delivery of equipment, we are not able to give exact dates at this time. We will inform you when we know more details. We apologize for this inconvenience! For questions, please contact Program Director Mr. Leonard Bruno at 516-887-0240 or at

Post date: 6/12/24
