DWI Presentation Letter

  • May 6, 2022

    Dear Parents and Guardians of the Class of 2022, 

    As Clarkstown Central School District moves forward with its No Empty Chair campaign, they have planned a DWI mock accident event on May 19 at Germonds Park. Seniors will be bussed from Clarkstown South after second period on the nineteenth to view the presentation.  At the conclusion of the presentation, students will return to school. Students who attend BOCES in the morning will be excused from BOCES should they choose to attend. 

    This presentation is one of a series of efforts to address the issue of drinking and driving as well as distracted driving that our school district and the Town of Clarkstown have collaborated to provide. The event is provided by our local First Responders from the Town of Clarkstown volunteering their time to talk to our students about the dangers of drinking and driving. They will share their experiences coming to the scenes of such accidents and dealing with the aftermath of these horrific accidents. They will show the students some of the aspects of such an event. In addition, a parent of one of our students who was lost due to a drunk driver will share her thoughts. Please read THIS ARTICLE  which outlines and summarizes last year's event held at Zukor Park.

    This will be an intense, emotional experience for those who participate. Please discuss this with your child in advance to make sure that you make the best decision possible regarding their attendance. This is not a mandatory event. There is no penalty for students who do not attend. However, our First Responders have shared that they believe those who participate walk away with a deeper understanding of the consequences and life altering impacts of decisions made about drinking and driving as well as distracted driving. It will be equally important that you talk with your children after the event or make arrangements for them to speak with a trusted adult. If you would like to opt your senior out of participating in this event, please complete THIS FORM

    Given the time of the year, as we have graduations and special events as well as having had very serious losses in the very recent past, we need to balance the potentially positive aspects of these discussions with a sensitivity to those who have been impacted by the loss of a loved one. We will not allow students who attend to video the event, and we are stressing with everyone that using social media to minimize or try to be humorous about such a serious topic goes well beyond inappropriate and will be addressed to the greatest extent possible. We appreciate your conversations with your student before and after the event to maintain the seriousness of this issue and to open the lines of communication regarding drinking and driving. 

    I will be meeting with the seniors during an extended homeroom on Tuesday, May 17 to share information about this presentation as well as upcoming senior events such as prom and graduation. I welcome any questions or concerns you may have regarding this and other senior events planned.

    Dear Students, Parents and Guardians of the Class of 2022:

    It is amazing to realize that the Class of 2022 have begun their last quarter of their education at Clarkstown High School South. Although the last two years have been nontraditional for our students to say the least, I am thrilled that the Class of 2022 has been able to spend their days in school together as a class. I am also excited that the Class of 2022 will continue to celebrate the close of their high school years together with planned traditional activities.

    Below I am sharing updated information with dates for the celebrations and activities planned for the Class of 2022. Please note that some of these dates may be different from what is listed in the printed calendar. 

    Decision Day - April 29 - Traditionally Decision Day is on May 1, and in the past, the seniors signed a poster in the lobby on that day stating their plans for after graduation. Since May 1 lands on a Sunday, we will recognize the event on April 29.

    Senior Awards Ceremony - June 1 - A separate email with information concerning the Senior Awards will be sent. 

    Senior Prom - June 2 - The senior prom will take place at Rockleigh Country Club and begins at 7:30 p.m.. A separate email with details and information about attending will be sent. 

    Yearbook Breakfast - June 3 - The day after prom, seniors will be excused from classes periods one through four. A breakfast will be served and seniors will get their yearbooks and preview the senior video. 

    Graduation Rehearsal - June 21 - 9:00 a.m.

    Graduation - June 21 - 5 p.m. at Clarkstown South

    My staff and I are looking forward to a safe and exciting end to the school year for the Class of 2022.

    Dear Class of 2022 Students, Parents and Guardians, 

    Clarkstown South’s graduation date has been changed to Tuesday, June 21st instead of June 22nd as noted on the district calendar. I apologize for any inconvenience; however, this change was necessary to accommodate conflicts with other ceremonies in our district. As of now, our plan is to have the graduation ceremony on the field of Clarkstown High School South. If the pandemic should cause any issues with this plan, I will notify parents immediately. The date of the graduation rehearsal will remain the same as it is noted on the calendar on June 21st at 9 a.m. As we get closer to the ceremony date, we will send more information  

    I wish all of our families a happy and healthy holiday season!


    Mrs. Debra Tarantino, Principal

    Dear Senior Parents and Guardians, 
    The below email was sent to your seniors to complete. Please advise your child to complete the form as soon as possible. 
    Debra Tarantino, Principal  

     Dear Class of 2022:

    We need your assistance in preparing your diplomas for graduation this June. Please click here to complete a Google form letting us know how you would like your name to appear on your diploma. Please use only your legal name (no nicknames), as your diploma is considered a legal document. Also, please indicate whether you use a middle name or initial, or type NONE if you do not use either.

    All information will be checked against Clarkstown Central School District's permanent records. If there are any discrepancies or questions you will be contacted by Mrs. Rauzi to clarify the information you submitted.

    Thank you.

    Dear Members of the Class of 2022 and Parents/Guardians:

    One of the many events and traditions that make Senior Year at Clarkstown South special is our Senior Luncheon.  This year, the Senior Luncheon will take place on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Park Ridge Marriott.  A buffet lunch will be provided for students, as well as a DJ for dancing. Senior Superlatives will also be formally announced at the luncheon.  

    Our goal this year and every year is that our Seniors are safe and enjoy all of their senior class activities.  To that end, the administration asks that you take a moment and read the attached Agreement of Expectations with your Senior.  

    After reading the agreement, please log on to www.myschoolbucks.com to purchase your child’s ticket, which costs $52, and sign the digital permission slip. Tickets must be purchased by Friday, October 8th. Please note: You must have a MySchoolBucks account with a registered Senior on the account in order to purchase a ticket.  Questions regarding MySchoolBucks should be directed to Ms. Dolan (cdolan@ccsd.edu).

    We appreciate your continued participation in our school-home partnership and look forward to working with your family throughout this special series of celebratory events.

    Dear Class of 2022,

    We are having our final cap and gown sale online at www.myschoolbucks.com from now through October 15th. The cap and gown will only show up in the online store when the buyer is signed in to the parent account; therefore, students will not be able to buy their own gowns through their own myschoolbucks account.  Parents need to create an account on www.myschoolbucks.com and add their child to the account. 

    The cost of the cap and gown is $40. Each cap and gown set comes with one tassel. Students sometimes opt to purchase an extra tassel to keep as a memento. Buyers will have an option online to purchase extra tassels, if they choose, for $7 each. 

    Students are asked to please contact Ms. Gordon at agordon@ccsd.edu with any questions.


    Mrs. Tarantino
