Statement from Susan A. Schnebel
Superintendent of Islip Public Schools  

On Friday afternoon, the district was made aware that a high school student posted an inappropriate comment via social media in reference to a basketball game to be held at Kings Park HS a few hours later. Upon reviewing the content, both districts immediately contacted local law enforcement officials as per district protocols.   

There was never a safety concern, as underscored by public police statements. However, the districts decided that no student spectators were permitted to attend the event.
