A teacher in the Valhalla School District was arrested and is facing a drug charge.

Dr. Brenda Myers, Valhalla schools superintendent, says in an email to parents that Gjon Krasnici, an elementary teacher in the district at Virginia Road School, was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance on Friday.

Myers says the district is making arrangements to ensure continuity for students in Krasnici's class for the rest of the school year. More information on the teacher to handle the class will be sent from the principal to parents early next week.

“This is a difficult situation for our school district and we will work together to ensure our students, staff and families are supported during the transition,” says Myers in the email.
