October 30, 2018

On Monday, Oct. 29, 2018, the administration at South Glens Falls High School received a report of a threat via students on the school’s text tip line.

Saratoga County Sheriff Deputy Mark Stewart, the district’s school resource officer, investigated the reports and determined there was not a credible threat.

“As always, safety of our students and staff is our number one priority,” said Superintendent of Schools Kristine Orr. “We’re thankful Officer Stewart could respond promptly to investigate and determine that the rumors were not credible.”

The district is thankful students immediately reported their concerns to the administration and that its law enforcement partners were able to investigate thoroughly and quickly.

“I would like to commend the students and members of our community who felt comfortable enough to reach out to our text hotline to make us aware of their concerns,” said SGFHS Principal Pete Mody.

As a precaution, the  Saratoga County Sheriff Department elected to have additional officers present at the high school today, Oct. 30, 2018.

Anyone with additional concerns can contact SGFHS Principal Pete Mody at (518) 792-9987.
