COOPERSTOWN – Last week, a 15-year-old Cooperstown High School student was arrested and charged with third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, for allegedly assaulting a student.
According to Trooper Aga Dembinska, Troop C public information officer, the student, whose name is being withheld because of his age, was issued a ticket to appear in family court. The case, Dembinska said, is closed.
According to a post on the Cooperstown Speaks Facebook group, the alleged incident, happened May 30 at the school.
COOPERSTOWN – The Cooperstown PTA will hold an open comment session during tonight’s meeting to allow parents to share concerns about an alleged bullying incident where a student was beaten and called homophobic slurs in the high school hallway in May.
Board President Marcy Birch declined to elaborate on the incident, citing an “ongoing disciplinary matter.” The meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. at the school.
