Suspicious incident reported near Marcellus campus


In a letter sent home today to parents of students in grades K-6, Marcellus Superintendent of Schools Judith Pastel said the Onondaga County Sheriff's Office was investigating the report of a suspicious person who approached a student near campus after school on Tuesday, Oct. 27.

The district, which is fully cooperating with law enforcement officials, only became aware of the situation today (Thursday, Oct. 29), after a community member inquired about it.

According to information from the sheriff's office, an older, heavy-set, white male with a white beard parked a late-model, maroon pickup truck near the Learners Landing entrance to the school campus (closest to Driver Middle School and K.C. Heffernan Elementary School). Deputies said the man sat in the truck for about 5 minutes and watched a student playing on nearby private property. He then pulled into the private driveway, exited the vehicle, spoke to the student and drove away shortly thereafter, according to deputies.

The student's parents notified the sheriff's office.

"We’re sharing these details with the school community, so everyone can be aware and vigilant," Dr. Pastel said. "The safety and security of our students remains a top priority at Marcellus."
