HOLLAND PATENT - The Oneida County Sheriff’s Department says the Holland Patent School District went into a lockout temporarily after a threat was posted online Wednesday.

Sheriff Robert Maciol tells NEWSChannel 2 that the threat, which was posted on social media, turned out to not be credible.

The school district posted a message on its website regarding the incident. It reads:

"The purpose of this communication is to inform you of an event that occurred late this afternoon, 5/7/18. Information was brought to our attention by concerned students relating to a social media post that was potentially threatening to the well-being of our students and staff. As a result, the District promptly initiated our emergency protocols and contacted law enforcement. We have found no credible threat to the safety of our students and staff. We have lifted our emergency protocols and dismissal is on time. Thank you for your understanding and support. Have a good day."

This is the second incident involving an alleged social media threat in the Holland Patent School District in the past week.
