Middle School Temporarily Evacuated
Dear East Islip Middle School Parents and Guardians:
advised that today, Oct. 11, all staff and students evacuated East Islip
Middle School due to an odor we believe to be associated with gas
cooktops and ovens in our family and consumer science classrooms.
Upon evacuation, some students reported to the ECC while others reported
to the high school. The Islip Terrace Fire Department and Suffolk
County Police Department responded, addressed the concern and confirmed
that the building was safe to enter. They also made recommendations that
are being addressed this afternoon. The rooms remained unoccupied for
the rest of the day. While this may have caused a slight inconvenience
in our day, all students and teachers reported back to classes and are
finishing the day on a revised bell schedule.
I would like to commend the staff and students for their patience and cooperation during this evacuation.
