WHBI incident

Dear Queensbury Families, 

William H. Barton Intermediate School officials were made aware after school today that a WHBI student brought an airsoft gun to school in a backpack and showed it to students on the bus ride home. The student intended to transport it to another family member’s house at the end of the day.  

Airsoft guns are replica firearms that shoot a plastic BB. They can, however, cause serious injury if misused.

The QUFSD school resource officer and building administrator investigated the incident and notified the Warren County Sheriff’s Office. 

Under no circumstances are weapons or replicas of weapons permitted on school grounds or buses. The safety of our students is imperative. As always, if you see something, say something. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the WHBI main office to speak to an administrator at 518-824-2609. Thank you.
