UPDATE: Union-Endicott school officials have now notified parents that Endicott Police have tracked down the source of the social media threats and have determined them to be a prank.
ENDICOTT, NY – There’s a police presence at all Union Endicott School District buildings Thursday following a threat posted to social media Wednesday.
In a call to parents, Union Endicott Superintendent Nicole Wolfe said that a social media account had been hacked and 2 messages were posted Wednesday threatening violence during lunch Thursday at the high school.
