Members of the Bayport-Blue Point School District Classes of 1970 and 1972 recently joined Superintendent of Schools Dr. Timothy Hearney and former Board of Education President Jim March for a tour of the district’s facilities.

Mr. March explained that both classes were celebrating 50th class reunions. The Class of 1970’s reunion was previously canceled due to the pandemic and rescheduled for this summer.

“We thought it would be a great idea to tour the facilities and see firsthand the great changes and upgrades to the buildings,” Mr. March said. “It’s a perfect way to reconnect with the district.”

The alumni, many of whom have moved throughout the United States, visited all three of the elementary schools, James Wilson Young Middle School and Bayport-Blue Point High School. They were particularly impressed by the changes at the high school where they toured the Hall of Fame, the technology classroom, auditorium, library, music rooms, cafeteria and the gymnasiums. There was a lot of reminiscing and laughter about the guests’ former experiences in the buildings and discussion about how times have positively changed in education, especially in the area of technology.

At the end of the tour, members of both the Classes of 1970 and 1972 took a group photo in front of the high school. Dr. Hearney reported that both classes had a wonderful time touring the district. He also noted that the tour was “a perfect way for the district to connect with the community.”
