We are thrilled to announce a new addition to the Wynantskill Union Free School District; Officer John Yerry, who will be joining us as our full-time School Resource Officer (SRO) from the Rensselaer County Sheriff’s Department. Officer Yerry brings with him over 10 years of valuable experience from the Watervliet Police Department, and we are excited to have him as part of our team.
Officer Yerry’s primary role as the SRO will be to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, staff, and school community. He will work closely with school administrators, teachers, and students to foster a safe and secure learning environment, as well as educate students with programs such as D.A.R.E.
“I’m excited to join the Wynantskill UFSD in order to protect our kids and be a positive influence in their lives,” Officer Yerry said.
We invite you to meet Officer Yerry during our upcoming events. He will be attending the 8th grade graduation ceremony tonight, Wednesday, June 21st at 7 pm, as well as Field Day tomorrow, June 22nd. These occasions will provide an excellent opportunity for you to introduce yourself and get to know Officer Yerry. Welcome aboard!
