School Bus Monitor Arrested After Striking and Threatening a Middle School Student

Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. reports the arrest of a school bus monitor, after the monitor allegedly struck and threatened a Putnam Valley Middle School student, while on a school bus.

Joseph Masi, aged 65, who resides in Cortlandt Manor, NY, was charged with Endangering the Welfare of a Child, a class “A” misdemeanor, and Harassment in the Second Degree, a violation, after he allegedly struck the eleven-year-old student in the face and then threatened to knock him out.

On January 11, 2018, school officials became aware of the incident that had allegedly occurred that day between the bus monitor and the student. School officials promptly notified the School Resource Officer, Deputy Ryan McMahon, who immediately responded to the Putnam Valley Middle School.

When Deputy McMahon arrived at the school at approximately 3:30 p.m., school administrators informed him that a student had been allegedly struck by a bus monitor while on the school bus. The school bus is owned and operated by the Montauk Bus Company.

Deputy McMahon immediately began an investigation into the allegation. After interviewing several witnesses and reviewing video and audio footage supplied by the bus company, the deputy arrested the school bus monitor, Joseph Masi.

Mr. Masi was arraigned on both charges on January 12, 2018, by the Honorable Justice Gina C. Capone of the Putnam Valley Justice Court. Mr. Masi was released on his own recognizance, pending a future court date in the Putnam Valley Justice Court.

2nd Annual Human Library Project Delights and Enlightens

By Kate Lambert and Susan Stone

 

The Second Annual Human Library Project, a joint venture of the Pawling Central School District and The Pawling Free Library, took place at the Pawling Middle School on Friday, January 12th. Once again, Human books of shared stories and knowledge from personal and professional lives, have forged human connections between Pawling Central School District staff members and other members of the greater Pawling community.  Attendees expressed that “reading” human books provided them with new perspectives and allowed them to see people in a different light. They enjoyed meeting members of the community and getting to know friends and colleagues better.

In all, forty-six community members volunteered to share their knowledge and experiences with readers during this  In-Service day for teachers and staff of the Pawling Central School District.  Human book titles enticed participants to join small groups to listen and learn through shared insights and experiences.  Such titles as Addiction:  A Health Crises by Susan Salomone and Carol Christiansen,  Love Your Mother by Jay Erickson, Half-Kidnapped and Overfull: Adventures from A Year in India by Carolyn Herman, Tweens, Teens, Social Media and Mental Health by Coleen Snow, and Like the Energizer Bunny, Keep on Keeping on! by Margaret Hubert was but a few of the forty-six fascinating selections available to readers at last Friday’s event.

By hearing people’s unique stories, many “readers” were able to think about positive changes they could make in their own lives. Readers were inspired, new connections were formed, and educators and other attendees gained new resources within the community. Among the attendants were Congressman John Faso of New York’s 19th District and New York State Senator Dr. Terrence Murphy.
