Welcome to the Big Flats Elementary School portion of the Horseheads School District’s web site. Thank you for visiting.

I am very proud of our school, students and community. We have a well maintained facility; a rich technology environment, and we provide a wide range of opportunities. What makes our school special are the people involved with it. I am so proud of all of our students. Every day they bring our school to life with joy, enthusiasm, and character. Our staff is first-rate. They are knowledgeable, energetic, and committed to our students and their families. We are so fortunate to have such dedicated staff members who care about each other and each child.

My colleagues and I are grateful for our hard-working and dedicated parent group, the Big Flats Parent Teacher Organization. They spend countless hours volunteering in our school and raising funds to enhance the education that we provide. They are invaluable to Big Flats.

If you have further questions or comments, please give us a call at (607) 739-6373.


Thank you,

Elizabeth Scaptura, Principal
