Letter from Massapequa Superintendent Lucille F. Iconis:
September 10, 2014
Dear School Community:
An incident occurred today at the Unqua School whereby two students left the building unauthorized. After a 911 response from the Nassau County Police working with School District security and staff, the students were located and found to be safe.
Following the incident, district officials immediately convened an investigation to determine the course of events and if regular processes and protocols warranted revision to strengthen security measures already in place.
Student and staff safety is our primary concern. As all emergencies are unique, they each provide us with the ability to critique our response. We take emergency planning very seriously and will continue to keep student and staff safety as our highest priority.
Very truly yours,
Lucille F. Iconis
Superintendent of Schools
