Clarkstown police are investigating a handwritten bomb
threat found on a bathroom wall at Nanuet High School on Wednesday afternoon.
Police Sgt. Fay said the incident is being investigated and necessary precautions are being taken but there is nothing to indicate that students or school staff is in imminent danger.
“It’s being taken seriously,” he said.
The threat was apparently found after school was dismissed for the day. He would not disclose where the bathroom was located or if female or male students or staff members used it. Sgt. Fay said numerous concerned parents had contacted the police department.
This is the text of the email sent to Nanuet School District parents by Superintendent Mark McNeill on Wednesday.
