CLARENCE, N.Y. (WIVB) - Clarence High School officials are calling a rumored text message threat "totally false," Friday after an investigation Thursday evening.
State Police and school officials handled a rumored text message threat, that allegedly involved a student bringing a gun to school. The school says this so-called threat is without merit.
A statement on their website reads:
You may be aware of a rumor that has been circulating on social media sites that a student planned on bringing a weapon to school. Please know that the high school administration was made aware of the rumor early last evening and, with the help of the State Troopers, we thoroughly investigated and deemed the rumor to be totally false and without merit. School is safe.
