On Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2020, residents of the Riverhead Central School District defeated both bond Proposition No. 1 and Proposition No. 2. Proposition No.1 failed with a vote of 1,151 YES to 2,626 NO, total votes 3,777. Proposition No. 2 failed with a vote of 993 YES to 2,775 NO, total votes 3,768.

“The board of education and administration wish to thank all residents who participated in the vote,” said Board President Gregory Meyer. “We are, of course, disappointed and very concerned that the work proposed in both Proposition No. 1 and Proposition No. 2 was not approved by voters. The facilities issues included in Proposition No. 1 are real and will only get worse and cost more to rectify the longer we wait to address these problems. The work proposed in Proposition No. 2 to improve our athletic facilities would have directly benefited our student/athletes and children enrolled in our community athletic programs that use district facilities. The board of education and administration will meet to analyze our options and share our plans with the community once decisions have been made.”
