Bayport Blue Point schools superintendent, Dr. Timothy Hearney, sent out an email to parents this morning, Tuesday, September 21 expressing grief and support about the recent death of a ninth-grade student at the high school.
Earlier this morning, Suffolk County News reported police activity at the railroad tracks between the Gillette and Railroad intersection where a fire marshall on site confirmed that a medical examiner had been called to the scene.
MTA Police, who have jurisdiction over the incident, were unable to comment.
Hearney said, "We know that the loss of another young member of our BBP community in such a short time is most devastating."
Members of the school's support staff will be available to students and their families this evening and tomorrow evening (September 22) from 6 pm t 8 pm in the high school library.
