On Sept. 10, the Board of Education approved a purchase and sale agreement with Terwilliger & Bartone Properties LLC for the Masera School property. The 11-acre property, located on Udall Road, originally opened in 1955 as Paumanok Elementary School and has remained closed in recent years.

In order for the sale to be finalized, it will require approval from the community. The district will host several public forums to provide voters with the opportunity to discuss the Masera property sale. The first three forums will be hosted on Wednesday, Oct. 7, Tuesday, Oct. 13, and Thursday, Oct. 22 beginning at 7 p.m. at Beach Street Middle School. Additional dates will be set in the weeks ahead and residents will receive mailings with information about the forums and pending sale. The district is still finalizing a vote date and will communicate that information to residents as soon as it is set.
