We recently received correspondence from the State Education Department informing all school districts to take extra safety precautions around or near bus stops and routes due to information they have acquired. To quote the Department, "a threatening email from an unknown email account to members of the media and various state officials references threats of violence in state office buildings, against the state legislature, and a specific reference to school buses."
Our Transportation and Security Departments have coordinated efforts to respond to this information and have enhanced their existing pre- and post-inspection routines for all bus transit. Montauk Bus Company has discussed this information with all drivers and our on-campus Security Team remains informed and active.
This posting is to inform you, and not alarm you. The Hampton Bays Schools continues to place the highest priority on the safety of its students and staff.
