Message from Superintendent Kathleen Skeals

Dear NCCSD Families –

This morning, a few members of the central office administrative team received an email with a non-specific threat. We immediately notified the Colonie Police, who commenced an investigation. According to law enforcement, this identical message, which did not target any specific building or person, has also gone to several other school districts today and last week.  This message has been sent to school districts in other neighboring states as well.

Keeping our students and staff safe is our number one priority.  Accordingly, we will continue to work closely with our partners in area law enforcement. Out of an abundance of caution, the Colonie Police Department is on-site and will have an increased presence at dismissals. As always, our security protocols are in place throughout the day.

Please know there is nothing we take more seriously than the safety of our community.
Kathleen Skeals
