Police determine social media threat toward GMS not credible

Over the weekend a threat was posted on Snapchat that a shooting would take place Monday at Gloversville Middle School. A parent notified local law enforcement, who in turn contacted Gloversville district officials. Following an investigation by the Gloversville Police Department and the New York State Police the threat was deemed not credible.

Please know that the safety of our students and staff is a primary concern for the district and any threats of violence, even when deemed not credible, are taken very seriously. Those determined to be responsible for such threats will face legal consequences. If a student or students are involved, they will also be disciplined in accordance with the school’s Code of Conduct.

As a precautionary measure and to reassure students and staff, police will be present on the Gloversville Middle School and the Gloversville High School campuses Monday.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child's building principal. If you have any information regarding this incident, please contact Gloversville PD or the New York State Police.
