Dear Uniondale Community,
I would like to update you on a facilities issue that took place at Uniondale High School today. This morning there was a report of the smell of gas on the third floor of the building. School administrators and the Director of Buildings and Grounds reported to the area immediately to ascertain the cause of the smell and began the process of relocating students and staff from the area. Out of an abundance of caution the decision was made to evacuate the building and contact the Uniondale Fire Department and National Grid to conduct a thorough and comprehensive assessment of the building. They found two HVAC systems that needed to be serviced and a small leak on two of the existing boilers that have since been turned off. It is important to note that the building was cleared for re-entry by both the Fire Department and National Grid. We have put together a plan to address the issues that were uncovered today. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. If you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office or Uniondale High School Principal Mr. McCaw's office.
Monique Darrisaw-Akil, Ed.D

FEMA Emergency Alert System to Occur Wednesday, October 4th
Dear Uniondale Students, Staff, and Families,
On Wednesday, Oct. 4th at 2:20 p.m. ET, there will be a nationwide emergency alert test on cell phones, wireless devices, radios, and TVs. Cell towers will broadcast the test for approximately 30 minutes. The test will include a notification with a vibration and an alert tone. The message will say “This is a test of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”
This is a standard test that occurs at least once every three years to help ensure that systems are operational to warn the public about emergencies if and when they happen.
While this is only a test of the system, it will occur during school hours and could cause confusion, so it’s important to be aware of the information that can be found on FEMA’s website.
Attached is an informational flyer regarding the National Emergency Alert Test.
Thank you for your understanding.
