On Monday, March 21, a bullet was discovered in a classroom at the Marlboro Elementary School. Turns out the bullet was brought into school by a student. According to an article written in the Southern Ulster Times, the superintendent of the school released a statement on the incident. 

Superintendent Michael Brooks told the paper that once the bullet was found on the floor in the classroom, the administration acted immediately to figure out how the bullet ended up in school. Brooks said the school’s resource officer conducted an investigation and it was determined the students and staff were not in any danger. The incident is being handled with the student’s parents, which is the policy of the Marlboro School District.

Brooks said the incident reminds us how important it is to be aware of what your child is bringing into school, and also for them to understand the consequences for bringing items to school that aren’t allowed on school property.
