Welcome to Nathaniel Woodhull Elementary School, “Where education begins.”
It is our pleasure to greet you as partners in your child’s educational journey. Here at Nathaniel Woodhull, we are fortunate to have highly qualified, professional, and dedicated faculty and staff members who are truly committed to providing our students with the best education in a caring and nurturing environment. The members of the Nathaniel Woodhull Learning Community are dedicated to meeting the individual learning needs of all of our students.
As the William Floyd School District Mission Statement indicates, “We are committed to teach, encourage, and challenge all students to fulfill their intellectual, emotional, aesthetic, and physical potential, and to apply their knowledge and skills to become contributing, responsible citizens of a rapidly changing, diverse, global society.” It is our job to make that vision a reality.
Together we can make great things happen! We look forward to this school year with great anticipation and excitement. Please feel free to contact us at any time if you have any questions or are looking for opportunities to assist in your child’s education.

The New York State mask mandate to have masks in schools is back in effect after an appellate division judge temporarily suspended or stayed, a previous decision ruling it unconstitutional due to the way it was instituted. As a result of this appellate court ruling, the mask mandate is back in effect for students and staff beginning on Wednesday, January 26.

The charts included will reflect the number of daily positive COVID-19 cases for the William Floyd School District. These charts will be updated on a daily basis when school is in session; the same figures are available at the NYS COVID Report Card link.

Alicia Arendt in Lima, Peru, providing water and food to residents

Although she didn’t graduate from William Floyd, Alicia Arendt spent the first 10 years of her schooling here and still holds her childhood community close to her heart. She has had the opportunity to travel all around the world due to her job as a United States diplomat, working on behalf of the U.S. government serving overseas to advance the interests of the American people. She is proud to share her stories from back home about the schools and towns that she grew up in. Much of Alicia’s family still resides on Long Island and one of her goals is to inspire the current generation of William Floyd students.
