The East Greenbush Central School District was informed by the East Greenbush Police Department on Tuesday morning that no one was attempting to steal a chromebook last week. The district had been alerted about an individual in the community who may have been fraudulently posing as an employee of the school district and visiting homes to try and collect chromebooks.
The district contacted police and sent an email to all parents of students regarding the incident. Following an investigation, the police determined the incident was a misunderstanding and that the individual in question was not attempting to steal a chromebook.
As stated previously, the district is NOT collecting chromebooks from people’s homes. All students should keep their chromebooks at home over the summer and bring them back to school in the fall. Only seniors are returning their chromebooks and that was done at Columbia High School on Friday, June 12.
We appreciate community members reporting concerns when they arise as well as the prompt response from the East Greenbush Police Department.
