They should do drug testing for all athletes. Would be surprised. Good start.

The BOE thought the Smithtown School District app was the greatest thing when they announced it at a board meeting. It hasn't been updated in almost a year. If you look at it you will see it still list Anthony Annunziato, Joan Niles and Maria Rianna on the app. Another great job by the district and board
