Local News

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (WROC) — Pittsford Mendon High School students are returning to school to resume classes after an evacuation on Monday.

“The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit has cleared the school and the backpacks the students had with them at the Church of the Transfiguration. Students are now in the process of moving back to Mendon High School,” Superintendent of Schools Michael Pero said in a statement.

According to the statement, the groups will receive lunch upon returning to the building and then resume classes. Dismissal will happen at the regular time of 2:21 p.m. Buses will be on time and after school and evening activities will be held as scheduled.

It isn’t clear what the threat was or where it came from.

“When I spoke with the students earlier today at the church, I was clear about the consequences of making such a threat. That is to say, anyone disrupting school, threatening our school, or our schools’ safety will be held to the highest accountability and consequences. This includes suspension and a police report to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office,” Pero said.
