KOSLOWITZ WANTS IMMEDIATE INTERVENTION AT FOREST HILLS HIGH SCHOOL

“I was absolutely stunned and dismayed to read the allegations in the newspaper concerning incidents at Forest Hills High School (FHHS). The allegations in essence claimed that the principal of FHHS was condoning and engaging in practices that compromised the health and safety of students and staff.

I have lived in my neighborhood for 56 years, and I can tell you FHHS has enjoyed a reputation for being a highly desirable school. My two daughters graduated from FHHS. Parents moved in to the neighborhood so their children could attend FHHS. I have been in the school countless times and I can tell you that what I read in the newspaper is nothing like the fine school that I experienced in those visits.

I am asking that the DOE immediately intervene at FHHS to insure that all laws, rules, regulations and policies are being adhered to. With respect to the principal, I am not rushing to a judgment based on a newspaper article. Those disciplinary matters will take their due course. But, the health and safety of the students must be guaranteed and guaranteed without delay. With the necessary corrections in place, FHHS will continue to enjoy the excellent reputation that it has deservedly maintained through the years.”
