Letter from superintendent regarding student threat deemed non-credible by police

Dec. 19, 2015

Dear parents,

On Friday afternoon, Dec. 18, a Stillwater High School student reported to administration that he overheard another student make threatening statements toward other students.

The Stillwater administrative team immediately investigated the situation and called the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office. Although police believe this not to be a credible threat, the student was arrested and taken into police custody. Moreover, the school has taken strict disciplinary measures as per the district code of conduct.

Please know that safety is of the utmost importance to Stillwater Central School District. Any threats of this nature, even if deemed not credible, are taken very seriously. The Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department and Stillwater Central School District do not believe that students or staff are in any danger; therefore, school will be open on Monday, Dec. 21. As a precautionary measure and to reassure students and staff, there will be police present at the middle/high school building on Monday.

We applaud the student who reported this threat and encourage all students and staff to also be proactive if faced with similar circumstances.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at smaziejka@scsd.org.

Sincerely,

Dr. Stanley Maziejka
Superintendent of Schools
