Roslyn BOE High School Campus Tour


The new school year is here. And with it, is the fall sports season. Just in time for that, a completely revamped athletic field is ready to greet Roslyn High School athletic squads.
Recently, Roslyn Board of Education President Meryl Waxman Ben-Levy, Vice President Michael Levine, Trustee Alison Gilbert, Superintendent Allison Brown, Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Education Michael Goldspiel, and Assistant to the Superintendent Jason Lopez toured Roslyn High School to review a series of recently completed upgrades to the campus.

The tour, led by Thomas Szajkowski, Assistant to the Superintendent for Administration and Special Projects, began on the athletic field, where BOE members inspected the new turf on the football field, saw the newly installed perimeter fencing and new pathway to the press box, and the addition of exterior lighting around the track. Replacement of the high school track is underway, along with a new pole vault and steeplechase.
“Our school campus has undergone a remarkable transformation with these recent upgrades,” said Superintendent Allison Brown. “The modern enhancements that we have made reflects our commitment to nurturing a thriving educational environment. These improvements aren’t just physical; they’re a testament to our dedication to providing students with the best tools and surroundings to cultivate their dreams.”
Work on the new field in what was called “the installation of a new, world-class track and field facility.”

“The project will include demolition, site preparation, and new engineering and construction of the current track and field,” district officials said. “The completed project will include a new running track, new multi-purpose turf field, a long jump/triple jump, a high jump, sand pits, a steeplechase, a pole vault, new perimeter fencing, a newly designed staircase/pathway to the press box, field lighting, and hi-resolution cameras,” officials added.
“Roslyn High School has a proud tradition of being very competitive in track and field,” said Director of Athletics Michael Brostowski. “This project will help give our students an edge, give a boost to our athletic program, and benefit all the residents who use the track during non-school hours.”
While the entire area is being renovated, it will be closed to the public. Community members can use the outdoor facility at Roslyn Middle School during the hours when school is not in session and no after-school events are scheduled. These guidelines will apply to the summer school program.”
“These upgrades are necessary to keep our outdoor facilities up to date and competitive,” added Superintendent Allison Brown. “This will benefit our physical education program and our extracurricular programs tremendously, and provide a fresh, new environment for our community members to enjoy.”
In other school district news, 180 Marching Bulldogs recently set off to attend band camp at Camp Taconic in Hinsdale, Mass. During their weeklong stay, they learned and practiced the drill for their 2023 production titled, “Careful What You Wish For.”
The Marching Bulldogs begin their competitive season on Sept. 17, at Brentwood High School. On Saturday, Sept. 23, they will perform their show at half-time during the Roslyn Homecoming football game.
“It was a fun and successful week in which the students made life-long friends and memories,” said Roslyn High School Band Director, Frank Mauriello.
