New Roots school in Ithaca resumes normal operations after threat investigation

New Roots Charter School in Ithaca maintained its regular schedule on Tuesday following an investigation into a threat discovered on the school premises.

According to the Ithaca Voice, a teacher found a note on a classroom window on Monday after classes, containing a message that referenced violence.

Officials emphasized the school’s prompt response, stating that any mention of violence is taken very seriously, leading to immediate contact with the Ithaca Police Department to report the incident and ensure campus safety.


The police investigation concluded that there was no imminent threat associated with the message, and the source of the message has been identified.

In response to the incident, the school allowed students the option to attend classes remotely for the day. Additionally, a police car was stationed outside the school as a precautionary measure.

Despite the initial concern, the school resumed normal operations on Tuesday, demonstrating effective crisis management and communication with law enforcement.
