Alleged threat made against Perry Central School District

PERRY, N.Y. (WIVB) - There will be a heavier presence of law enforcement officers at Perry Central School District on Wednesday after school officials reported a possible threat was made via social media. 

According to the school, a post said a threat against the school was planned for Wednesday.

Students brought the post to a district principal's attention Tuesday morning. 

"The threat that was taken from the screenshot of the social media post that was shared with us was written on a white masonry block. And district administrators and also local law enforcement officials conducted a thorough search of our facilities, as you can imagine there's a lot of white masonry blocks in our facility. [They] conducted a thorough search and there was absolutely no evidence of this particular threat," said Daryl McLaughlin, district superintendent. 

Local police and the FBI are aware of the alleged threat and are currently investigating. 

Parents were notified via robocalls and the district's website. 

Classes will continue as scheduled Wednesday.
