Dear Parents/Guardians,

I am writing to inform you about the arrest of a student that took place in my office yesterday, April 10, 2018.

School officials were made aware of an incident involving two students and a bb gun after receiving a call on Tuesday morning from the parent of one the students involved. Immediately after being made aware of the incident, school officials interviewed the two students and notified the Gloversville Police Department.

We want to make clear that this incident occurred near the district administrative offices on the basement level of the middle school building. The student who was arrested now faces charges and is prohibited from being on school grounds.

As educators and as parents ourselves, we are deeply concerned by incidents such as the one that occurred Monday. We want parents and students to know that we take our responsibility to keep our students and staff safe very seriously. Safety remains our first priority and is an ongoing effort in each of our school buildings. We will continue to review and practice our safety protocols and procedures, and remind everyone of the importance of contacting school administrators to report any suspicious or unusual behavior or threats of violence made towards our students or schools.

As always, please contact me or your child's school principal if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Robert DeLilli
Interim Superintendent
