New Fairfield student disciplined for 'disturbing Instagram message'

A New Fairfield student has been disciplined for what school officials called a disturbing Instagram message last week.  In addition to the nationwide TikTok scare, which prompted a police presence at schools across the Greater Danbury area, Superintendent Pat Cosentino says a message was brought to their attention Wednesday. It implied there was a hit list with 100 to 150 New Fairfield High School students’ names on it.  Cosentino says there was no list and the message was deemed not credible.  A student confessed to posting the message and has been disciplined.  At the New Fairfield Board of Education's most recent meeting, a student representative reported that students feel unsafe in school.  The High School senior said the seemingly unchecked misconduct at the high school and rumored threats of violence have been negatively impacting social-emotional well being and learning.
