A bomb threat led to the evacuation of Palmyra-Macedon High School Wednesday morning, disrupting the school day for students and staff.
The threat, which was found written within the school premises, prompted an immediate response, with students being redirected to the middle school for safety as local law enforcement and safety officials conducted a thorough investigation of the high school.
The high school building was deemed safe for re-entry after law enforcement completed their on-site checks. Following the clearance, the district announced that classes would continue, though on a modified schedule to accommodate the disruption and ensure students’ lunch periods could proceed.
The district has been actively investigating the origin of the threat, with the investigation remaining underway. Communication sent to parents shortly before noon detailed the procedures followed and confirmed that only the high school was affected by the evacuation. The district expressed gratitude for the community’s cooperation and promised to keep parents updated as new information becomes available.
