June 12 statement regarding an Intermediate School playground finding

For your information art

Dear Minisink Valley parents/guardians:

In the interest of transparency, we wanted to share that during our daily, morning safety check of the Intermediate School’s grounds today, June 12, a bullet was found by a school security aide.

This bullet was turned over to law enforcement who began an immediate investigation. To be clear: There was never any gun involved, or any threat. Only a bullet was found.

The safety and security of our students and staff is our top priority. We are grateful for the dedicated work of our Security team and the Orange County Deputy Sheriff’s deputies, who are onsite daily, for their commitment to student and staff safety.

Your continued partnership allows us to provide a safe and secure environment for your children.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Brian C. Monahan
Superintendent

Paul Dombal
Intermediate School Principal
