Cohocton campus and pre-K operations are not impacted

By Andrew Harris

Update: The district has sent out a automated call to parents indicating that the building is safe and the alarm was caused by a “system error.”

The Wayland campus of Wayland-Cohocton is being “cleared” by authorities after a potential threat.

The nature of the threat is unknown and isolated to that campus only.

“The district is working on clearing the building and believes this to be a false alarm.”

Ten minutes later, the district posted this clarification:

“Wayland-Cohocton Clarification: We currently believe it is a false alarm but are being cautious in our approach. The Wayland Campus is continuing in a shelter-in-place. We will continue to provide updates. The Cohocton campus is not on lockdown.”

Social media reaction to the vague notices:

  • Amanda Gilman What does this mean
  • Alisha Hoad Why can’t we know what is happening. Our children are in there
  • Joleen Schirmer Lockdown is where they hide in the classroom and be quiet. Shelter in place is an upgrade to they can move around in their classroom but still need to stay there while things are still being checked out
