Arneta White Simmons, beloved and respected by family, friends, students and all whose lives crossed hers, was born on October 27, 1937, in Laurens, South Carolina to William Abram White, well-known principal and Ethel Singleton White Perry, outstanding Georgia state teacher of the year. She and her brother inherited a rich legacy of faith, family, and education. She transitioned from life peacefully on December 23, 2021; as she did everything in life…on her and God’s terms. To the very end, she was the spicy, determined, kind and loving force to be reckoned with that made you smile all the way to your heart.

We are writing to inform you that the District has been made aware of and is currently monitoring nationwide social media activity that alludes to threats toward school buildings on Friday, December 17. While this is not explicitly addressed to the Roosevelt Union Free School District, we take this matter with the utmost seriousness. Along with several other school districts throughout Long Island, we have contacted local law enforcement and are cooperating as they conduct investigations. These threats are also being investigated nationally by the Department of Homeland Security and are believed to be a hoax.
