Senior Citizen Gold Card Program

It is with great pleasure and excitement that the Plainedge School District announces its Senior Citizen’s “Gold Card” program.

It is our way of saying thank you for your support of our schools. All residents of the Plainedge School District who are 60 years of age or over are eligible for membership in the Gold Card program. Upon receipt of a completed membership form, Seniors will receive a Gold Card in the mail within a few days. Please show the pass when entering a Plainedge Schools event.

Gold Card members receive:

  • Free admission to District-sponsored activities and events, including regular-season home athletic events and concerts.
  • Invitation to a special matinee performance of the high school musical in the Spring as well as a reception before the show.
  • A private tour of the District Art Show, which showcases the very best artwork produced by our students throughout the year.

For events which require reserved tickets because of limited seating capacity, Gold Cards may be used to acquire one ticket in advance of the performance date. We have other events in the planning stage, so if you are interested in knowing what we have in store, or if you have suggestions or want to join our advisory board, please sign up! Senior Citizens on the Gold Card mailing list also receive special mailings to stay informed about the events available in the Plainedge Public School District.

For more information, please visit our website at or call our district offices at (516) 992-7457. The application is available on our website and may also be obtained from us by emailing All completed forms may be delivered in person to Central Administration, Office of the Superintendent, 241 Wyngate Dr., N. Massapequa, to our District Clerk, Maureen Ryan with appropriate ID presented or you can choose to mail it in with a copy of your proof of age.

By empowering both students and staff and molding the complete student experience through our core values, we have earned acknowledgment for our commitment to character development.

Plainedge High School, Charles E. Schwarting Elementary School, and Eastplain Elementary School received Honorable Mentions and look forward to being recognized as State Schools of Character in the future.

Congratulations to our entire school community for their significant contributions to the education and exceptional character development of our students. Your commitment and efforts have played a crucial role in shaping the outstanding character of our students.
