Public Announcement: MCSD Homecoming 2016

I would like to share with you some facts related to Friday night’s Homecoming Game. I was present for the entire game on Friday night along with four school district administrators, five high school staff member chaperones and three Millbrook Police officers, who were on duty to provide security. During the second quarter of the game, I was told that a Burke Catholic school bus accidently hit a car in the Middle/High School parking lot. I headed down to the parking lot to provide assistance. While I was at the parking lot, I received a call alerting me that the football scoreboard power went off. I immediately headed up to the field to investigate. I received another call alleging that someone with a knife cut the power line to the scoreboard. When I got to the scoreboard, the power was back on. In actuality, the power to the scoreboard was not cut, but a switch was turned off.

In an effort to monitor and secure the area around the scoreboard, I stood by the scoreboard until the end of the game.

The Village police contacted the State police for their assistance in continuing the investigation of verbal reports from students in regard to an individual with a knife being at the game. By the end of the game, there were no further incidences and the allegations of an individual with a knife were not substantiated by anyone.

Today the Village police continued their investigation into the allegations of an individual with a knife being on school grounds. I do not want to compromise the investigation, but if it is founded that someone was on school grounds with a knife, I will make sure that appropriate actions are taken.

We always want to assure the safety of all of our students and staff at all times. I also want to continue to keep the lines of communication open between the school and community and make sure to share factual information with you. The information I had as of Friday night did not indicate that the allegations of an individual with a knife being on school property was true. Today I received additional information from the Millbrook Village Police that the allegations may be true, which prompted me to make this call. Please know that I am limited as to what facts I share with you so I do not jeopardize the investigation.

MCSD Participates in "Trees for Trib" Grant

Our District partnered with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation in a "Trees for Trib" grant project to protect the watershed of the creek between the Alden Place Elementary School and the Millbrook Middle School. The creek ultimately feeds into the Hudson River. The project involved the planting of trees and shrubs in an effort to protect the creek and filter any water run-off from the land surrounding the creek.

During the process, we were learned of a web-site for homeowners that you may find interesting. The web-site is called: MyWoodlot.com.
