Farmingdale School District officials are alerting parents to review safety concerns with their children, after last week, when a high school student reported that an unidentified male was following her while she walked home from school.
The individual, who had followed the student down Lincoln Street, also attempted to have a dialogue with the student, who entered her home safely and without incident.
The following day, both the parent and the student reported the incident to school administrators. In response, Farmingdale High School Principal Glen Zakian sent a letter to parents in the district, alerting them to the incident.

Over the weekend, people filled the streets of downtown Farmingdale, to bring in the merriest of holiday’s in fashion... with the annual holiday parade, presented by the Farmingdale Chamber of Commerce.
“Saturday was very well attended and the parade ended up competing with the FHS Championship game,” said Chamber President Beth Mignone. “The Chamber received a lot of emails asking to have the time of the parade changed because they wanted to be at both events... which shows you how close the town really is, and how involved our residents are.”

The Giants faced off against the Jets in the girl’s grades 9 – 12 Super Bowl last Sunday. The two teams were evenly matched, having split the two regular season games. But it turned out to be the Giants’ night, winning by a score of 18-7. The Giants played short-handed all season, with a roster of only five; and all five girls contributed greatly to this victory. The Giants took the opening drive and scored a touchdown on a short pass to Kat ‘Safety Dance’ Krieg who made a good move to get free and run it in from 25 yards out. It looked like the Jets were going to tie it when the fleet-footed Myasa Evans broke free on an end run but Jessica ‘Steady’ Scire came all the way across the field and made a touchdown saving flag. A few plays later Hailey ‘I’m retiring’ Lospitalier intercepted in the end zone to thwart the Jets’ scoring chance. The Giants capitalized when they drove the full field and scored a second touchdown on a short pass to Krieg. The Giants expanded their lead in the second half to 18-0 on another short pass to Lospitalier. This followed a beautiful bomb pass from QB Theresa ‘Air’ DeSantis to Krieg who was run down just short of the goal. The defense played outstanding, especially Hanna ‘Wild Girl’ Berge who made several diving, touchdown saving, flags. DeSantis was on target all night long, finishing with three touchdown passes and many completions which helped control the ball and the clock. A well-deserved win by the girls against an outstanding team.
