WHITESBORO – The Whitesboro Central School District is responding to an alleged threat made by a student.


According to Superintendent Dr. Brian Bellair, late last night the district was notified about an alleged threat of violence involving the high school that was made by a Whitesboro student.

Bellair says immediate action was taken by law enforcement to investigate the threat and ensure the high school students’ safety before they arrived at school this morning.

Nobody was in danger at any time, according to Bellair, and when the investigation is finished, any student found to be involved in threatening activity “is subject to disciplinary action consistent with our code of conduct.”

"While we can unfortunately never eliminate the potential of threatening behavior, we stand ready to react quickly and take all necessary measures to address any threats to our school community," Bellair's statement continued. "As always, all threats should be immediately reported to school officials and/or law enforcement. The safety of our students and staff remains a top priority in our district."

Just after 12 p.m., Bellair released the following additional statement:

"As a follow-up to the communication sent out earlier regarding the alleged threat made by a high school student, please see the additional information below:

- Law enforcement was notified and conducted a thorough and immediate investigation at our high school.

- The threat was not verified as having been made.

- No weapons were brought to school.

- The student alleged to have made the threat was not missing. The student’s whereabouts were known at all times.

-At no time was the high school on lockdown."
