Oysterponds Elementary School officials announced Friday morning its Board of Education Secondary School Negotiating Committee has scheduled a meeting for Sunday.

School board president Deborah Dumont said the committee will start the meeting at 2 p.m. and will then enter into executive session to open sealed bids. No other action will be taken by the committee, she said.

The Oysterponds school board announced this week it has submitted secondary school contract proposals to both the Mattituck and Greenport school districts. Oysterponds currently sends its junior and senior high school students to Greenport, its neighboring school district.

According to state law, the district must designate its secondary school — or schools — by April 1. But since that falls on a Sunday, Oysterponds has decided to hold the meeting on April 2.
