View superintendent’s letter about high school incident

Dear parents and community members,

It has come to my attention that a video of an altercation that occurred this week at Goshen High School was posted on social media and shared throughout Goshen and neighboring communities.

The Goshen Central School District takes these matters very seriously, especially those involving the health, safety and welfare of our students and staff. This matter has been thoroughly investigated and the students involved have been held accountable according to the district code of conduct. As a district, we must always work to maintain a healthy culture absent of violence that allows our students to learn in an atmosphere where they feel safe. While it is unfortunate that  instances such as this arise, it is important that we address them swiftly and appropriately and continue to support the great learning environment we enjoy here in Goshen.

The Goshen Central School District stands steadfast in its mission statement in creating a “welcoming and supportive school environment.” Thank you for your continued support of this endeavor.


Daniel T. Connor
Superintendent of Schools
