JOHNSTOWN - City police and Greater Johnstown School District officials investigated a threat at Johnstown High School, but it was unfounded, according to district Superintendent Robert DeLilli.
"There was rumors going around there was going to be some kind of violent action at JHS," DeLilli said today.
He said city police and district administrators investigated and found the threat to be untrue.
The district posted information about the possible JHS threat on its website.
The Johnstown rumors followed the recent tragedy in Newtown, Conn.
DeLilli said he spoke to police Chief Mark Gifford and Mayor Sarah Slingerland regarding the needs and security of the schools. Additionally, in the coming days, he said he will meet with security experts regarding school safety. An architect has been invited to review each entryway and see what could be improved, he said.
The Broadalbin-Perth School District on Thursday heard a rumor of a bomb threat for its high school. The district placed three village police officers there this week.
