Greenport School evacuation is only a drill
Sirens, fire trucks, police cars all usually spell emergency, it was just a drill in Greenport Friday afternoon.
In Southold, students were released early to test arrangements for evacuating schools in an emergency.
Parents were notified of the drills in advance. The aim was also to give parents a chance to test any arrangements made should their children ever have to be released early in case of a real emergency.
