Police in Ithaca say they investigated several threats that were called in to students at the high school on Monday.

On Monday IPD and the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Department received complaints of phone calls placed to Ithaca High School students threatening violence at the high school on Tuesday.

IPD was in communication with school officials and was able to determine that the calls were made from a cell phone using T-Mobile service with a registered address in New York City.

Police said there were no known or confirmed tied to the Ithaca-area or the high school. IPD assigned several uniformed officers with marked patrol vehicles to the high school to provide an added layer of security on Tuesday.

Police said they worked with school officials.
