A 16-year-old Arlington High School student was fatally stabbed by an Arlington alumnus and died following a college football game between Scarsdale and host Arlington on Friday night. No spectators or athletes from Scarsdale were involved in the incident.
Scarsdale High School will have staff available to “discuss or debrief this situation” starting Monday, with any students or parents who wish to discuss it.
“Although our students were not directly involved in the situation, incidents like this can be difficult to understand and deal with,” Scarsdale Superintendent Dr. Thomas Hagerman wrote in a press release.
Hagerman added that “In accordance with our safety, security and emergency management protocols, we will debrief this incident at our next safety committee meeting and review the procedures of our sports teams when participating in off-campus competitions. . “
When the Scarsdale team got on the bus after the game, the “bus drivers were ordered to leave the Arlington campus away from the incident area.”
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family who lost their child in this terrible act of violence as well as the entire community of Arlington,” Hagerman wrote.
