This evening, we were made aware that a concerning screenshot is circulating on social media with a message of a threatening nature. We immediately began working with the Town of Tonawanda Police Department to investigate the origin of this message. They have confirmed that this message did NOT originate within the Ken-Ton School District or Western New York and was NOT pertaining to any students in our area. TTPD has released the following statement:
"A Snapchat message containing a non-specific school threat has been circulating through numerous districts locally and in other states. This threat has been investigated and found to not be credible."
We sincerely appreciate the assistance of the Town of Tonawanda Police Department. We take any such reports extremely seriously and will always work in close partnership with law enforcement to ensure the safety of our students and staff which will always be our highest priority. TTPD will be conducting increased patrols around all schools out of an abundance of caution.
