IRONDEQUOIT, N.Y. — Officials from the West Irondequoit Central School District says a person is being questioned by the Irondequoit Police Department after a security concern was called in to the Safe School Help Line.
Additionally, there will be an increased police presence at the school Monday as a result of that tip.
Officials say the threat was non-specific, and made by a student on social media. It prompted not only a call to the hotline, but also calls to 911 as well. Police say they questioned the student at 12:45 a.m.
"The system we set up last year with the anonymous phone call system worked exactly the way it needed to work. We've all heard if you see something say something, but in addition if you are concerned about a youngster for any reason you use that phone line to get our attention specifically on your concern," said Jeffrey Crane, West Irondequoit Central School Superintendent.
The social media post and tip came in Sunday which prompted extra security at Sunday night's Victor versus Irondequoit football game in Victor. Police were also present upon the team's return to the high school.
All increased security measures will continue throughout the day.
The game between Victor and Irondequoit was postponed on Friday due to weather.
