Girl Charged in Somers High School Threat

A female Somers High School student accused of making a threat against the school on Instagram has been charged and school officials determined the threat was not credible, according to the superintendent's office. 

A parent of a student who received the threat reached out to school officials around 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, according to the superintendent, Dr. Maynard M. Suffredini Jr., and police began investigating.

State police said the student was charged with breach of peace.

The school was not locked down because the school doors are always locked and people have to buzz to get into the school, according to the superintendent.

Parents, as well as administrators of the elemetary and middle school, were notified of the situation.
