HOLLAND PATENT -- The Oneida County Sheriff's Office arrested a 14-year old following a threat made on social media against Holland Patent Middle School.

Authorities have not releasing the identity of the teen and have not said whether the juvenile is a student at Holland Patent.


The juvenile is charged with making a terroristic threat, which is a class D felony.


Holland Patent discussed the threat at its regularly scheduled school board meeting Wednesday, but no one spoke up with concerns.


The superintendent says students told staff about the threat.


Law enforcement determined there was no credible threat or danger to staff and students.


The superintendent says he has recieved phone calls and emails with concerns about the incident.


He says the district is moving forward in the safest manner possible.


"Anytime a safety concern is brought to us, we don't take it lightly," Superintendent Jason Evangelist said. "We take it to the fullest extent of investigation and then work through that process to help make determinations working wth law enforcement, and moving forward to show that we are safe for our students and for our faculty and staff and our community."


This is the second incident involving a social media threat in the Holland Patent School District in the past week. Emergency protocols were taken during both threats.


Law enforcement says despite an arrest being made they will continue to look into the threat.
