It’s September, the first day for several schools in Central New York, like Moravia School District.
“I always still get butterflies I still get the excitement when you wake up in the morning, I got two kids in this district,” Superintendent John Birmingham said.
It’s also the first day a security guard is patrolling the halls of Moravia high school.
“I’m very excited, my first day of school,” Donald Langtry said.
Donald Langtry was a state trooper for 29 years. He’s currently a Moravia police officer and has many ties to this district.
“I graduated from Moravia many moons ago many decades ago and I have five children whom graduated Moravia High School,” Langtry said.
Superintendent Birmingham said Langtry was Moravia’s school resource officer in the past, but this year the village changed its mind.
Birmingham said the village had some concerns about bringing back a school resource officer. The school board pushed for him to come back with a new title.
