A social media threat remains unresolved

Late last night, Wednesday, November 1st, the Wayland-Cohocton Central School District received notification of a threat made on social media. The district began working with the local law enforcement to investigate the threat. At this time the district and law enforcement have not been able to resolve the situation. Therefore, we are canceling all classes today on both campuses. This includes students who attend programs at other locations, including BOCES programs.. The district and law enforcement will continue the investigation throughout the day, today, Thursday, November 2nd, 2023. We will update families with any new information.
Reaction to the closure was mixed on the “What’s going on around Wayland NY” page. Dani Tranello was glad the district made the decision:
“It’s a good thing the school is taking it seriously. I hope they find the responsible party and figure out what is actually going on”
Kevin Wolf remembered a time when things were much different:
“Sad to think that back in my day we had our guns and ammo in our cars in the school parking lot…. anyone who threatened someone else with a “weapon” would have gotten their asses handed to them… time to start raising men again?”
