Dear Parents and Guardians:

I am writing to inform you that a written threat was discovered today on a bathroom stall in the Rocky Point Middle School referencing the date of Saturday, December 13, 2014. Upon discovering the threat the district immediately contacted the local law enforcement authorities. The Suffolk County Police and the District are conducting a thorough investigation. Any individuals determined to be involved in this situation will be held fully accountable and appropriate disciplinary actions will be taken.

Out of an abundance of caution, in addition to the presence of District security staff this weekend, the Seventh Precinct has agreed to increased police patrols at the High School/Middle School.

While these matters have become all too commonplace in our society, it is of the utmost importance that we take these threats seriously, as the health and safety of our students and staff is our first priority.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.


Michael F. Ring, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
