Dear Putnam Valley Community Members:


On January 11, our district learned that a bus monitor in the employ of Montauk Bus Company was accused of threatening and striking one of our middle school students while he was on a Montauk bus. We immediately informed parents of the student and the bus company and referred the incident to our School Resource Officer, Deputy Ryan McMahon who thoroughly investigated the matter. The bus company immediately relieved the monitor of his duties and there was follow up by the County judicial system including an arrest.  We are fortunate to have a strong and effective partnership with our Sheriff’s department.  Montauk Bus Company has also been cooperative throughout the investigation.


The Putnam Valley School District is committed to the safety of our students and staff.  To that end we have open communication with Putnam County and our contractors on behalf of our students.




Dr. Frances Wills

Superintendent of Schools
