BROCKPORT N.Y. (WROC) — Students at Brockport High School were evacuated due to a potential bomb threat Friday morning.
Officers responded to Brockport High School around 8:55 a.m. Upon arrival, officers met with school administrators who requested K9 unit assistance from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and the Rochester Police Department.
Once student and staff evacuated the building, officers and K9 units swept the building and nothing suspicious was found.
“When it comes to the safety of the children, of the community, we’re going to take every threat seriously,” said Sgt. Ben Melos.
Officials wouldn’t say if the threat was made by a student.
Parents were concerned.
“At first I thought it was some sort of shooting or something because he said they had been evacuated because I didn’t really know anything and he didn’t tell me anything o I was kind of freaked out,” said Sara Didonato, parent of a Brockport student.
At this time, no one is in custody in connection to the bomb threat, according to Sgt. Melos.
Another school threat just a few miles away forced an evacuation of Gates-Chili High School Friday afternoon. Students were dismissed early due to the nature of the bomb threat. Officials said they were not aware of any connection between the school threats.
The school is located at 40 Allen Street in Brockport.
