MPD investigates student’s messages; threat found to be non-credible

On the morning of Wednesday, March 17, Monticello Central School District administrators became aware of messages of a threatening nature posted by a Robert J. Kaiser Middle School student within the school’s online learning management system.  

School administration immediately notified the Monticello Police Department, who located the student off-campus and deemed the threat to be non-credible. As Wednesdays are remote instruction days in all Monticello CSD schools, there were no students in any school buildings during the incident.   

While the district is unable to disclose further information due to confidentiality laws, we are working in cooperation with law enforcement to fully investigate the incident and take appropriate measures to ensure no repeat conduct. 

“The safety of our students, staff and community are always our top priority,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Matthew Evans said. “We are grateful to our building administrators, internal security staff and the MPD for their professionalism and support.”
