WESTMORELAND, N.Y. – A threatening email sent to Westmoreland Upper Elementary School was found not to pose a valid danger to students or staff, according to Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol.
According to the district’s website, officials immediately contacted the sheriff’s office after receiving the email around 8:30 a.m. Friday.
The school was put under a hold-in-place and lockout while the threat was investigated by the four armed special patrol officers already at the school.
The threat was found non-credible, according to Maciol, and the hold-in-place was lifted at 10:20 a.m.
Superintendent Rocco Migliori says students and staff weren’t in any danger during the incident.
