At approximately 1:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 15, there was an incident with police activity near Irish Lane. At no time was there any threat to our schools. As is normal in these circumstances, we did move extra security to the schools in the vicinity.

Please note that we take direction from the Suffolk County Police Department during any situation like this. At no time were we asked to go into any sort of lockdown or other emergency procedure.

I would like to take this opportunity to commend the SCPD and Third Precinct for keeping an open line of communication with our school district and for their brave service to our community on a daily basis.

P.S. I love you, have a nice vacation!

Superintendent John Dolan
