Important message from Superintendent Belfield
Good Afternoon -
This is Jeremy Belfield, Superintendent for LaFayette Central Schools.
Our high school principal was recently informed about a .22 caliber ammunition round found in a classroom at the high school.
A student found the ammunition round on the floor next to a backpack. Other students in the vicinity identified the item as a .22 caliber bullet. The prohibited item was immediately reported to a staff member. The staff member turned the item over to the principal. Our high school principal interviewed the students who recovered the item and one of our on-site Onondaga County Sheriff deputies searched the classroom for any other prohibited items. Following a search of the area, there were no other items of concern found in the vicinity.
I would like to say thank you to the students and staff member for bringing this item to our attention. I would like to assure our parents, students, and staff members that we take this matter seriously. I would like to remind all of our students to check their backpacks, coats, or possessions prior to coming to school to make sure that there are no prohibited items being brought to school. While we live in a rural area, it is important to remember that ammunition (live or spent) and other items used for hunting activities should not be brought to school.
The safety and security of our students is of utmost importance. I applaud our students and staff member for bringing this item forward. Thank you for your continued support in keeping our school community safe.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via phone at 315-529-9550 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and have a great afternoon.
Superintendent of Schools
