Binghamton High School has completely reopened after a week of “virtual education” for many students.
The school at 31 Main Street went into “fully remote” mode on September 21, the day after a shooting involving four people about a block away.
Principal Kevin Richman has announced a plan to gradually reopen the high school over the next few days. All of the school’s approximately 1,400 students were invited to arrive before 8 a.m. on Tuesday.
In a letter to families, Richman described the reopening process as a “phased reintegration plan” to allow students to “appropriately reconnect with staff and peers.”
The first few weeks of the new school year were marked by what some parents called a series of brawls, brawls and other issues. Much of the problem was related to the younger students.
Richman said that until further notice, grade 9 and 10 students are to stay on campus for lunch. He wrote that “the campus is now closed for them”.
Random bag checks take place and hand-held scanners are used “to detect metal objects”.
More staff were added at the time of the layoffs. A visible police presence was observed at the school as students left the building after class on Monday afternoon.
Binghamton School District Superintendent Tonia Thompson was not available to discuss the behavioral issues that prompted the new security measures.
