Northport parents seek answers after student relocation

Parents demanded answers from the Northport-Eastport School District Board of Education on Thursday after administrators decided to close Northport Middle School after toxic chemicals were found in the soil near classrooms, but not inside the school or in the air.

Students and parents protest outside school

Instead of going to school on Thursday, some students and their parents staged a so-called sickout outside to voice concerns about environmental hazards at Northport Middle School.
