No threat found after police review incidents at South Jefferson Central School District


ADAMS — The South Jefferson Central School District will lock its doors after police reviewed a pair of incidents early Thursday and found no threat.

State police early in the day responded to concerns of a suspicious vehicle near the Mannsville Manor Elementary School, 423 N. Main St., Mannsville, but did not find any threat.

A second incident, in which a South Jefferson High School student expressed general concerns about safety, was also quickly addressed and no threat was found.

As a result of the safety concerns, the school will lock its doors for the rest of the day Thursday. The move parallels the actions of several other districts in the region. The school is also calling for extra police presence through the rest of the school day.

“We’re erring on the side of caution,” said Superintendent Jamie A. Moesel.

She added there were no specific threats to students today or Friday, and that many of the reported concerns were coming from Facebook and other internet outlets.

“What we’re finding is the rumors are coming off of different rumors,” she said.

In a notice about its security on its website, Ms. Moesel said those with questions or concerns can call the District Office at 583-6104.The school’s notice can be found at
