Updates on sports and security | #schoolsaftey

The shooting of a school security officer in a parking lot after a football game on Saturday does not mean that the Utica schools aren’t safe. 

It doesn’t mean that the Utica schools don’t have good security. 

And it doesn’t mean that Utica athletes shouldn’t play out all the games left in the fall season and the rest of the school year, Interim Superintendent Kathleen Davis stressed during a livestreamed update on Wednesday morning.  

Those are the points that Davis has emphasized since security officer Jeff Lynch was hit in the back of a head by a bullet during Saturday’s fight as he, other security officers and Utica police officer did their jobs, working to break up the fight. 

“We have a very safe school,” Davis said, calling the district’s security policies a model for other districts. “We do a great job here. Our students are very well behaved.” 

Davis will advocate and work with other districts on “making sure our students don’t lose one minute of playtime,” she said, noting that cutting extracurriculars would significantly harm Utica students.
