School Days

Greenport Union Free School District

Greenport High School’s Honor Society launched its annual “Back to School Supply Drive.” The drive aims to round up school supplies for the students of the district. The drive will last all summer long and donations can be dropped off in the main lobby of Greenport High School.

Eastern Long Island Hospital’s Dr. Lawrence Schiff, chairman of emergency medical services, recently threw an educational pizza party for Greenport Elementary School’s second-grade students. The students were educated on the basics of first aid and emergency medicine by Dr. Schiff and his administrative assistant Carmen Mendez. The duo, along with the class’s teacher Mrs. Wallace, worked to bring the program to the school and coordinated with Greenport EMS and ELIH to have an ambulance and a Stony Brook Paramedic Fly Car attend as well.

“We will hopefully still continue this as a yearly endeavor for the Greenport second graders,” Dr. Schiff said.

Thank-you letters sent to the doctor from the students cited “seeing an ambulance” and “information about doctors” as the highlights of the class.
