    Dear Long Island High School Community,


    I am saddened to report that one our students was deliberately injured by a car at approximately 8:00 PM near Jackson Avenue during the evening of Oct 31, 2017. He remains in serious condition at Elmhurst Hospital. Our continued thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

    We are aware that other members of the LICHS student body were with him that evening and witnessed the harrowing event.  Our school community has made our school counselors and social workers, together with counselors available from our school based CCNY Mental Health Clinic. Any friend of the student or any LICHS student or family member may drop in and meet at any time to receive expert professional support for our students and their families at this difficult time. Social workers will continue to be available to escort any student from their classes to the clinic if a student exhibiting any signs of distress in the aftermath of this event.

    If any member of our community is in need of further information or support please do not hesitate to contact me at 718-545-7095.
