VERONA, N.Y. – Madison-Oneida BOCES was on a lockout Tuesday morning after an angry parent called the school making verbal threats, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.
The lockout began around 8:45 a.m. as a precautionary measure while students were inside taking State Regents Exams.
After an investigation, the lockout was lifted around 10:40 a.m. when the threat was found to be non-credible.
Sheriff Robert Maciol says although the lockout was lifted, access to and from the building is still restricted and the staff have been notified to remain alert.
