A message from Superintendent Ziskin regarding a person walking on school property

This is David Ziskin, superintendent of schools. I am posting to alleviate any  alarm created by a report that was heard by civilians over a police scanner today. This morning, the administration at our High School communicated with the Fort Plain Police, as they often do, because it had been reported that an individual, who was unfamiliar to a teacher and that teacher’s class, was observed walking on school grounds shortly after school started. This individual left school property and was seen walking toward the village shortly after.  We are pleased that our students and staff again chose to say something when they saw something. We are also very fortunate to have such a strong responsive, relationship with local law enforcement who have assured us our schools remain safe and secure.
