Poughkeepsie school threats ‘without merit’

POUGHKEEPSIE – Police Chief Thomas Pape has informed the Poughkeepsie City School District that the recent social media post, specific to the threat of a school shooting at Poughkeepsie High School, has no merit.

Classes were cancelled on Thursday and Friday, but are expected to resume on Monday.

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Nicole Williams said to ensure a safe and secure learning environment, the district will station a police officer at each of the nine school buildings for the full school day and will continue enforcing the district’s school safety plan and code of conduct.

“While we are committed to ensuring the safety of our students and staff, it is important to remember that school violence prevention is everyone’s business,” said Dr. Williams.
