Statement from Dr. Steven Cohen, Superintendent of Schools - 1/9/14

Earlier today, Shoreham-Wading River High School was temporarily placed on a lock out status due to a security issue that occurred in the parking lot. The perimeter was secured, meaning no one was permitted to leave or enter the building. As such, there was no disruption to the school day, as students were permitted to move about the school. Once the situation was resolved by the Suffolk County Police Department, the lock out was lifted. As always, the safety and security of our students is the district’s top priority.
