Welcome Message:

Dear Bridgehampton Family Members,

Welcome to Mr. Reilly's page. It is my goal at Bridgehampton to provide a safe and welcoming environment to all students in all of my classes. Students will be treated with respect. Students are expected to respect others in class, the school equipment/facilities and most of all--themselves. Academic rigor will be pursued every day from bell to bell. It is also my hope that students will forever be students of history--well beyond their years at Bridgehampton.
