Information Regarding Today's Lock Down
Today, on Thursday, April 24 at 1:00 pm, students at Alleghany Avenue Elementary School reported a suspicious person in one of the neighboring yards near the school playground. All of the students were brought inside the building and the school was placed on lockdown while Suffolk County Police officials investigated the matter. Following a patrol of the area the police indicated that the neighborhood was safe and the lockdown was lifted.
In addition, due to its proximity, the Lindenhurst Middle School initiated a brief lockout and Daniel Street Elementary School, as a precaution, reverted to indoor recess during lunch periods while the police conducted their investigation.
All schools are open and dismissal procedures and afterschool activities took place as usual.
The safety and security of our students is paramount and the district takes every measure to ensure their well being.
