HVCSD Bus Safety

Dear Hoosic Valley Families,

The safety of our students and staff is always our number one priority. One of the most important parts of our safety plan is the presence of a school resource deputy on campus daily. Our resource deputy is here to protect our students, to get to know our families, and to help students make good choices. One of the ways to do this is for our deputy to make occasional ride-along on our school buses.

Yesterday afternoon, a student recorded and shared an out of context clip of our resource deputy answering a question from a student on one of our bus routes. In the clip our resource deputy can be heard explaining how a taser is used. He was explaining the safest way for law enforcement to use this non-lethal tool. Our resource deputy and the Rensselaer County Sheriff's Office are aware of this video and would be willing to talk about this with anyone who has concerns.

Take care,
Jim Buhrmaster
Hoosic Valley CSD
