There was beefed up security on Tuesday at Clinton High School after a threat posted on social media regarding a potential shooting at the school.

Superintendent Stephen Grimm says they identified the student who made the comments and determined that there was no actual threat.  Grimm says it was other students who originally saw the "live chat" messages and reported them to school officials.

An alert was sent to parents, students and staff on Monday.

New Hartford Central School District was also on a heightened level of security on Tuesday after the administration at Perry Junior High School received information regarding a possible threat between two Junior High students.

Superintendent Robert Nole says a thorough investigation by New Hartford Police determined the alleged threat was not credible.

Nole says they maintained a normal academic school day and at no time were students, staff or school facilities in danger.
