The students at Frank P. Long Elementary school in Long Island have been getting sick. And the staff have been dying. Out of 105 staff, thirty-five have gotten cancer since 1998 and fourteen have passed away. In one specific classroom 5 people were diagnosed with cancer. The school, which sits in the shadow of a massive 270 foot landfill, has had testing showing numerous vocs some elevated at times linked to the landfill. Chemists have stated that the combination of the vocs is a toxic mixture and Doctors notes have stated that the air quality is not healthy. There are times students stay in for recess because the smell is so bad. This is unacceptable in a district that has other means and support to move a school. Numbers show this is not normal and why continue to play Russian Roulette with teachers and childrens health. CLOSE THE SCHOOL. THIS CYCLE NEEDS TO END! If you truly believe the FACT that people are getting cancers and illnesses at an alarming rate in this school then everything in your power has to be done to close this school!
