Monkton school burglary probed

MONKTON — In the wake of a burglary at Monkton Central School last week, school staff and students are putting the school back together and returning to normal.
“There are people around making repairs and that’s somewhat disruptive,” said Principal Susan Stewart. “The teachers and staff are definitely keeping things as normal as possible. There hasn’t been any huge interruption.”
The Vermont State Police (VSP) are currently investigating the theft of money and computer equipment as well as the damage of school property. The school is still tallying up their losses and will then provide them to the VSP. A window and an exterior door were visibly broken into, explained Stewart, who said the interior damage to the school was substantial.
Moving ahead, Stewart hopes people who have any information regarding the incident will report it to the New Haven VSP barracks at 802-388-4919.
“If anyone sees any equipment or a cash-flow they wouldn’t have expected otherwise, please call the state police,” she said.
In the meantime, the school is installing new locks and security equipment and keeping a closer eye on the property.
