Superintendent: Police investigate Port Byron student’s concerning Instagram post

New York State Police have opened an investigation at the Port Byron Central School District after a middle school student made a concerning post on social media Thursday night, Superintendent Neil O'Brien said.

At around 7 p.m. Thursday, O'Brien said a student posted something on Instagram that caused concern at the district, which asked state police to investigate.

In a phone call Friday, O'Brien would not disclose the exact contents of the post, but said there was "no direct threat to the school or students." He said police had conducted an initial assessment and found "no imminent threat" from the student.

O'Brien said the student was not at school Friday. While the student has not been suspended or expelled, the superintendent said there had been a disciplinary issue with the student earlier in the week. O'Brien would not say what that issue was, but said it did not involve any weapons or physical contact with any student.
