A documentary film by Left turn Productions and producer Keif Roberts called Sick School will have a free showing on January 5th at 10:00 a.m. at the Boys and Girls Club of the Bellport Area, 471 Atlantic Ave., Bellport NY.
This is a video about Frank P. Long elementary school in Bellport, which is located just south of the Brookhaven Land Fill off of Sunrise Highway. Like Northport Middle School, this school has been plagued by illnesses and deaths among teachers, staff and students. The parent group from Northport Middle School has been working closely with the teacher group of this school and are now called sister schools. Adrienne Esposito from Citizens Canpaign for the Environment is now working with the Bellport school.
There will be a question and answer period after the film is over and the teacher’s group has graciously asked any of us from Northport Middle School to come up on stage and talk about what we have been going through since our school opened in 1956. We would like as many past and current teachers, staff and parents to come to this free screening as possible.
