Three city high school teachers -- including one from Long Island -- were arrested for smoking marijunana outside a rock and roll concert, police said.

The teachers, all from Urban Assembly Media High School in Manhattan, were spotted by a patrol officer outside the Beacon Theatre on the Upper West Side sharing a marijuana cigarette, officials said.

They were identified by police as Alan Blaustein, 42, of East Moriches; and Lauriann Kress, 23, and Jerome Zolobkowski, 31, both of Manhattan.

Each was charged with one count of fifth-degree criminal possession of marijuana and given a desk appearance ticket, police said.

Dina Paul Parks, a spokeswoman for the city department of education, said the teachers would be reassigned to other schools pending the outcome of an investigation into the charges.
