Scotia-Glenville Proactive in Student Confidence and Safety

Like many schools, Scotia-Glenville Central School District has done what they can to implement a proactive, common sense approach to recent events. On Sunday afternoon, administrators met on their own time to review safety measures making sure staff, parents and students all experienced a normal level of comfort in our schools.

"The tragedy in Connecticut is heart wrenching and has all of us thinking about school safety," said Superintendent Susan Swartz. "Keeping our children safe is my first priority....and the priority of our staff and all employees."

For those families without access to the district website the following letter has been sent home with all students.
