School threat prompts 2-hour delay Monday in Waterloo: Officials say investigation underway

The Waterloo Central School District will operate on a two-hour delay Monday after a ‘specific’ and ‘credible’ threat was received.

The district sent a message out to parents and members of the community indicating that the threat was directed at the middle and high school buildings.

However, due to bus schedules, all buildings would be impacted.

“In order to ensure the safety of our students and staff, all schools will operate on a two-hour delay Monday, April 24, 2023,” the statement to parents read. “During this time, a sweep of the Middle/High School building will be done by the Seneca County Sheriff’s Department and Waterloo Police Department as outlined in our district’s safety plan.”

Officials say school will open when the building is cleared.

Individuals who threaten our schools will be treated accordingly by the authorities and under the policies of our Student Code of Conduct.”

The district added that it would share more information as updates become available.
