The Longwood school district will conduct a school safety drill with emergency responders at Longwood Middle School Tuesday from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The exercise is a planned drill, under the control and direction of the Suffolk County Police Department. The campus will be closed, except to those directly involved in the drill. The public, press and employees will not have access to school grounds.

School officials advise the public to anticipate considerable activity around the school with emergency vehicles, flashing lights and blaring alarms.

They said it is advisable to avoid Yaphank-Middle Island Road in Middle Island Tuesday between 4:30 and 8 p.m., as normal traffic congestion likely will worsen.
