GOUVERNEUR Gouverneur Central School has joined Sackets Harbor Central and Indian River Central in trying to quell the fears of parents about the safety of their children.
The district has distributed a letter to parents and the community addressing the tragedy in Connecticut and rumors that some kind of incident would take place at Gouverneur Central on Friday.
Rumors and or concerns brought to our attention by students, parents or community members, especially regarding student safety issues, are taken very seriously and therefore, are investigated by district administration and typically are shared with local law enforcement, Superintendent Lauren F. French wrote in the letter that is posted on the districts website. From ourintensive investigation, we have found no credible validation to any rumors that have beenreported. Rumors of this nature are never taken lightly or ignored.
The district did not have a lock-down as rumors have circulated, Mrs. French said.
We have locked doors like we always do, she said. Were vigilant. We dont disregard any phone call.
