Students Interact with K9 UnitSchuylerville first-graders learned a lesson on safety from four special visitors on Wednesday, June 7. Deputy Rob Whipple and Deputy Nick Denno from the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department visited Schuylerville Elementary School, along with their K9 partners Karma and Jagger. Students learned what the K9 Unit is and how the dogs are helpful to police. The officers also gave students some safety tips, including instructions for if they get lost. Officers told the students to sit down and sing their favorite song loudly so the police and dogs can find them. The students seemed to have a lot of fun learning about and interacting with the dogs.
