This case is evidence that the community is heeding the advice of school leaders by observing, reporting, and following up on all suspicious activity. In the wake of the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, FLA, school districts have seen an uptick in calls to anonymous tip lines. Communities are banding together to do whatever it takes to keep our kids and our schools are safe. Remember – if you see something, say something. As a district, we are grateful to those who reported this video and we appreciate the Greece Police Department for their continued partnership and proactive handling of this situation."
