NEW HARTFORD – Yesterday local police and the New Hartford School District investigated an alleged threat of violence that was found to be not credible, according to a notice from Superintendent Robert Nole.
The notice sent out on Tuesday states that before the end of the school day, a concern was brought to high school administration regarding an alleged threat of violence at the high school. Local law enforcement and high school administration immediately acted to ensure the safety of the campus and investigate the threat, according to Nole.
“This evening, it was confirmed that there was no credible threat to our school,” Nole said in the notice. “Nevertheless, we always stand ready to take all necessary measures to address any threats to our school community.”
Nole says that anybody with information regarding possible threats to the New Hartford school community should report it immediately to a school employee, district administration or law enforcement.
