  • TIK TOK Posting

    Posted by Deborah See on 12/16/2021

    We have been receiving a number of notifications throughout the day from our Community regarding a new viral posting on Tik Tok that indicates that school violence will occur at schools throughout the country, tomorrow December 17th. Based on extensive discussion with and investigation by the East Fishkill Police Department, we are being informed that these statements are generic in nature and are non-specific.  However, as a precaution, we will have an increased law enforcement presence at our schools throughout the District tomorrow.  We greatly appreciate the diligence in reporting issues of mutual concern to the District that exists within our community.   Please know that the safety and security of our students and staff remains our top priority, and that we will provide any additional information if needed regarding this matter.
