School Announcements and Upcoming Events
Get Ready for PSATs, SATs and ACTs!
Fall is the time for Juniors to take the PSATs, also known as the Preliminary Student Assessment Tests.  At LLCS, all Juniors will take the PSAT the morning of Wednesday, October 19.  This is a "practice" test for the SATs, which are offered throughout the year, but are usually taken in the spring of the Junior year and/or the fall of a student's Senior year. 

Students can take the SAT as often as they wish - the highest score is the one that will be recorded on the transcript.

See the Guidance section for this year's testing dates and regisration deadlines.

Both the SAT and ACT test results are often considered by a diversity of colleges as part of the acceptance process.

Now Parents Can Apply for College Aid Earlier in the Year
For the first time ever, parents of seniors who will be entering college in September 2017 can submit the application for Federal Student Aid - FAFSA - as early as October 1.   Previously, the application date was in February.

This means that parents can use their 2015 tax return.  As a result of this change, students should be able to estimate their financial aid and colleges could provide financial aid offers earlier in the application cycle.

For more information about FAFSA, follow this link to the FAFSA site.

Important Information about your Property Tax Bill
The Long Lake Central School Tax Bills that were issued September 1, 2016, are invalid and have been voided.  Corrected tax bills that contain the valid 2016 Long Lake Central School District tax amount that is due and payable under NYS Real Property Tax Law have been mailed on September 14, 2016.

Hamilton County Real Property Tax Services, who prepare the school tax bills, reviewed the data and criteria used to generate the original bills and determined the bills contained “errors substantial in number and identical in nature”.  Veteran’s Exemptions for school tax purposes were not extended by their systems to certain taxpayers who were qualified for and entitled to receive partial relief from taxation.  Accordingly, the School Taxable Values of the Veteran’s properties were inflated.  This resulted in an incorrect calculation of the base Total Taxable Value for the School District.  The net result was that every tax bill subsequently issued was therefore calculated in error.

The only reasonable and appropriate remedy available in these circumstances is to void the original LLCSD Tax Bills and Tax Roll and fully reissue a new series.  Any payment that you may have previously submitted based on these now voided bills will be returned. 

Please note:  This amount will be due interest and penalty free until 10/15/2016. Payments received in person or postmarked between 10/16/16 and 10/31/16 are subject to 2% penalty.  Payments made after 10/31/2016 will not be accepted.
