Hendrick Hudson School District Superintendent Statement on Alleged Marijuana Sale

Not enough evidence for arrest; internal investigation underway.

Editor's Note: What follows is a press release from the Hendrick Hudson School District Superintendent of Schools Dr. Daniel T. MCann.

Montrose, NY- On Monday, February 13, 2012 my office contacted the New York State Police regarding the alleged sale of marijuana in the High School.

The State Police conducted an investigation over two days and determined there was not enough evidence available to support an arrest.

At this point, we are conducting an internal investigation. Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken as warranted at the conclusion of our investigation.

Due to the nature of these allegations, we are prohibited from releasing any additional details, including name(s), charges or allegations.

I’d like to take a moment to thank the law enforcement officials involved for their speedy and thorough investigation in this matter.

Pack a rat there young man. Kick back, drink some beer, smoke some weed!

That is what happens to your towns and schools when you let liberal progressives take over....vote them all out....Thank God that $25 million bond was voted NO by our thinking citizens.

Shar, Do you see liberal demons in your sleep? This article has nothing to do with politics and statistically marijuana use is not tied to any particular political philosophy. Lighten up.
Shar February 21, 2012 at 10:47 PM
Marius, Thank God I don't see demons in my sleep....what set you off on demons anyway? Did I mention demons in my comment. Do you equate liberal progressives as demons? Me thinks it is YOU who sees demons. :))

The point being missed here is the School Board is trying to cover up a real problem in our distirct. The board thinks they have total control over all things Hendrick Hudson but they won't take resposibility for the lack of disipline.
Shar February 22, 2012 at 01:55 AM
This problem goes much deeper and farther back than you know. I tried to bring this to the school Principles attention long ago...and he did not at all show concern. My children went to Hen Hud. Parents should be aware of what is going on in our schools today. Open your eyes if you care and speak out.
Tucker J February 22, 2012 at 04:01 AM
Neither the principal nor the teachers are going to be concerned as long as the school board protects them and not our children! The board is more concerned about image and protecting salaries than solving the problem. If the teachers are using and selling drugs imagine what the students are doing!

It is sad to see so many of you right wing, brainwashed parents feeding into the media. With budget cuts on the mends, in order to protect the future of his bloated salary Mcan is running the picture perfect community "Media" campaign to win you support. I commend him on his commitment to political tactics, however, I don't commend him on his audience, too easy. If I were a politician I would be licking my political chops, salivating over the money I could make off of the laziness of this community. http://www.4hb.com/08iceinfuencepeople.html - This article, along with various but supposed drug influenced Pink Floyd albums may help to enlighten you. Sorry for the ones who didn't get that; The Pink Floyd that became famous after "Darkside of the Moon" in fact wrote that song about the only drug user within the band, Sid Barrett. Sid did so much acid that he became unresponsive, emotionally, to the rest of the world and left the band before they made there mark in America, the rest were drug free... If the state police doesn't have the evidence, how can Mcan? If the alleged teachers go down, I will testify, see that all of your taxes go up and these teachers will own the majority of the land you will eventually foreclose on due to sheer and utter stupidity. By the way, how are we going to hold double standards in a community with bars that allow family fun night with free drinks to parents who support underage drinking.
Shar February 22, 2012 at 09:47 PM
Wow, Tom Parks, a typical left wing liberal progressive! Making threats to his neighbors, raising their property taxes?....LOL LOL LOL Coming out of the wood work...we'll see more these kind of post from the likes of other "Tom Parks" in hiding.
Tom Parks February 22, 2012 at 10:49 PM
P.S.-It's not threats, it's the promising future if you live in a judgement infested society.
Tom Parks February 22, 2012 at 10:52 PM
Wow, I am taken back on how well thought out your counter point was. In fact, I'd like to nominate you as the next Town Garbageman... eh hem I mean supervisor. I proudly voted for Senator Mccain and my thoughts come solely based on my own views, spite the fact that I'm a registered republican who has been pushing for Ron Paul. I guess the crisis in this community is the closely related to the crisis across America. It's funny, I assumed that you would call me a liberal. I can also tell by the amount of "LOL's" that your a mutant of society and prob resort to Z100 on your ride into work, either that or country. I'm also sure you probably are a boomer with no control over your kids which leads you to hire prescription babysitters such as haldol, ativan, klonopin, zoloft, lexapro etc. (just to name a few) but I think you get my point. You probably lived high/mighty in your prime and now judge others when nobody judged you. Our children are over medicated and under appreciated that is the problem my dear. It's science, that's all it is. INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY!! Muah : )
Shar February 23, 2012 at 01:06 AM
ahhhhhhhh, that explains it, you are a Ron Paul man...enough said! Most Ron Paul supporters are a bit MAD and little off.
Tom Parks February 23, 2012 at 03:37 AM
I don't get it? How does simplicity=mad? He runs a very simple campaign that makes sense for once than being sol on corporate America? Oh wait who is the liberal? I work countless hours to earn my right as a human let alone a citizen, to speak. All in all, I'm not out parading down on wall street. I'm just simply, I repeat "simply", trying to emphasize a way to heal this world through a realists view. Vote for what makes sense, boomer. Most of all, don't look at the guy like he is just the fool on the hill, listen to him.
Tom Parks February 23, 2012 at 03:40 AM
Until you've done your research, I cannot give you anymore of my time. That is all I have to say. Toodles.
Shar February 23, 2012 at 12:36 PM
Toodles? LOl LOL LOL
Shar February 23, 2012 at 12:40 PM
I care about our children ...liberal progressive teachers have infiltrated our schools and Democratic politicians have allowed the UNIONs to take over so they can have their vote...Vote them out!
Tom Parks February 23, 2012 at 06:58 PM
It doesn't matter when your surrounded in a community with people who do not get their views out there via voting. If voting was held on Facebook, it is guaranteed you would get different views from the people who have a mind but are just to lazy to actually vote. Mainly because we are sucked up in this ginormous corporate scandal called the "Media", it is simple and it is scary.

Tom Oliva was selling pot at school His wife Christine Oliva works at Tuxedo High School I wonder if she sells too??? I guess they needed extra money Facebook Share

VoR, so you've posted this on two threads. While certainly some recent events which have occurred close together have led to rampant rumors of what you wrote (and privately we can all think as we wish), as far as I know there has been no confirmation of your allegation, and I think it is wrong to state it as if it is truth. I for one still believe in not damning a person with potentially false facts.

geesh, I was looking into real estate in Hed Hud but it sounds like there is no pride or ownership?
Shar April 11, 2012 at 08:12 PM
Where the hell is Hed Hud? I am moving to Texass LOL
