The Pulaski Street School houses 820 fifth and sixth grade students. It is located on Pulaski Street adjacent to Polish Town. The beautiful brick building with its majestic columns was erected in 1938 and was the site of the first high school. With its high ceilings and large windows, the school carries a special charm. School Hours are 8:05AM to 2:35PM.

When you enter Pulaski Street this year you will see some amazing changes and additions as our construction phase comes to an end. All the floors at Pulaski have been replaced, we have a new science classroom and lab, and our new cafeteria and kitchen is up and running. You will also notice that the steps in front and in the back of Pulaski have been replaced to ensure the safety of all.

Pulaski has strong community partnerships with community organizations such as CAP and groups that sponsor essay contests:
- The Community Awareness Program (CAP) emphasizes self-esteem, discipline and remaining drug free.
- Strong arts / music programs and community-sponsored essay contests.
- A variety of after school clubs and after school activities.
- Pulaski students and staff raise awareness and money each year for causes often inspired by the Reading/Writing program and participate in a number of other fund-raisers for charities.

Happy School

Riverhead CSD implementa la plataforma de informes anónimos Shareit

El Distrito Escolar Central de Riverhead continúa sus esfuerzos para garantizar que nuestra comunidad escolar se sienta segura y respaldada mediante la implementación de Shareit, una plataforma de informes anónimos.

"La seguridad es la principal preocupación de nuestra junta de educación y administración", dijo la superintendente de escuelas la Dra. Aurelia Henríquez. “Shareit permite a nuestra comunidad escolar -estudiantes, facultad, personal, padres y residentes- una oportunidad para compartir comentarios positivos sobre el ambiente escolar y hablar sobre la seguridad y las preocupaciones relacionadas con el bienestar en un ámbito no amenazante. Continuaremos investigando los programas que mejor se adapten a nuestra población estudiantil y promuevan la seguridad y el bienestar ".

Aunque los usuarios pueden informar problemas conocidos o compartir noticias positivas de forma anónima, la plataforma ofrece la opción de identificarse. Una vez que se presenta un informe, se envía directamente a los funcionarios escolares para su revisión, y se tomarán las medidas apropiadas.

El widget Shareit se puede encontrar en la esquina inferior derecha del sitio web del distrito,, así como en la página web de cada escuela.

Riverhead CSD implements anonymous reporting platform Shareit

The Riverhead Central School District is continuing its efforts to ensure our school community feels safe and supported by implementing Shareit, an anonymous reporting platform.

“Safety is the number one concern of our board of education and administration,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Aurelia Henriquez said. “Shareit allows our school community – students, faculty, staff, parents and residents – an opportunity to share positive feedback on school climate and speak out about safety, security and wellness-related concerns in a non-threatening arena. We will continue to research programs that best fit our student population and promote safety and wellness.”

Although users can report known issues or share positive news on an anonymous basis, the platform does offer the option to identify oneself. Once a report is submitted, it is sent directly to school officials for review, and appropriate action will occur.

The Shareit widget can be found in the lower right corner of the district’s website,, as well as on each individual school webpage.

Pulaski Street Students Honor Memory of Andrew McMorris

On Jan. 15, students at Pulaski Street Elementary School in the Riverhead Central School District paid tribute to Shoreham-Wading River Boy Scout Andrew McMorris by wearing red to school. McMorris was tragically killed last year by a drunk driver.

The Andrew’s Day memorial was led by several Pulaski Street students who were all Boy Scouts with McMorris. Among them was fifth grader Liam Sherman, who brought the idea to his teacher, Stacy Hubbard.  

In planning for the memorial, Sherman wrote a speech about his friend’s hopes, dreams and accomplishments, which he read to his peers over the school’s PA system on Jan. 13.

Sherman, along with his classmates, also made red ribbons for all students in the school to wear and placed red ribbons in and around the school in memory of McMorris.

The school plans to continue to honor McMorris’ memory by donating to the Andrew Rocks fund, which raises money for causes in Andrew’s name. Funding will be provided through the school’s Tuesday Positive Shirt Day initiative, in which staff and students offer donations in exchange for wearing shirts with positive messages.

Students Refurbish Guitars for Library

Art Club members at Pulaski Street Elementary School have donated 10 refurbished guitars to the Riverhead Free Library to loan to students in need of an instrument. 

This is not the first time that Pulaski Street students have reconditioned and donated guitars under the direction of art teacher Robert Fallot. In the past, the club has rehabilitated guitars for children in Puerto Rico, California, Texas, Florida and Kabul, Afghanistan. 

The less-than-perfect guitars are brought back to life through weeks of tedious work as students restring, add screws and nuts, and paint. The program is made possible through donations from the Pulaski Street PTO, Riverhead Rotary Club, D’Addario Music Company in Melville, Spirit of Harmony Foundation and
