Parents: Huntington Station school isn't safe

Some parents say the Huntington Station building where their children attend elementary school is no longer safe.

Last week, a shooting occurred within earshot of the Jack Abrams Intermediate School and students like Sarah Montreuil, a fourth-grader, say the sounds scared them. Now parents are pushing to move the roughly 500 fourth- through sixth-graders out of Abrams and into a different building.

The PTA president says moving to a different building isn't a solution, but an avoidance of the problem. School administrators have not made any decisions about the proposal, but security at the building has been increased.
