We wish to thank our students, staff, and parents for their support in addressing an incident at the end of the school day on Wednesday, October 13th. We would also like to thank the Daily News for helping get the word out quickly so that community members could be assured that students were at no time in danger.

The facts are that two young men were spotted outside our high school just before the final dismissal. One of these boys was carrying something that looked like it might be a weapon. We always error on the side of safety and immediately secured both our high school and middle school buildings while law enforcement was contacted. Fortunately, an officer was already on campus and able to respond immediately. He was quickly able to confirm that there was no real weapon or threat of danger, but was able to address the disturbance create
