Anyone who ever worked or attended school at the Middleville Road building are urged to get tested for heavy metal poisoning. A group of parents have formed a Facebook Group, (K)oncerned Parents, to share information, comments and sources about Middleville, themselves, their sick children, what they have tried to do and how they have been treated by the Northport district and the Board of Ed. The K stands for K wing which has been closed since June of 2017. The parent in charge of the Facebook page is Denise Curci Schwartz. Anyone asking to be a friend should either state that they worked in the building or mention R-UTN member John Kobel (his posts show up as Phyllis Kobel).
A petition has been started by the (K)oncerned Parents urging the closing of Northport Middel School. They are asking all concererned community members to visit the Change.org petition page and add their name.
