A discussion about the Sag Harbor School District potentially purchasing the former Stella Maris Regional School building on Division Street in Sag Harbor during this Monday’s Sag Harbor School Board of Education meeting will not include a discussion about costs and potential uses of the former Catholic school, as originally reported, but instead will be a discussion about how the district intends to roll out that information to the public after the holidays, according to Superintendent Katy Graves.

The topic will be a part of a general update on district goals for the 2015-16 issue during an educational meeting on Monday, December 7 at 7:30 p.m.


The Stella Maris property was listed for sale for $3.5 million after the Catholic school closed in 2011. This fall, the district hired BBS Architects, Landscape Architects and Engineers to analyze the property. In several recent closed sessions, the board has been presented with costs associated with making the property safe, bringing the building up to state Department of Education standards, and potential ways the district could use the space. Administrators have also been presented with options for the property.

The meeting will take place in the Pierson library, 200 Jermain Avenue in Sag Harbor.
