Herkimer BOCES statement on Pathways Academy incident
Sept. 30, 2016



ILION – At 11:21 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 28, a 16-year-old, ninth-grade student in the Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES Pathways Academy at Remington in Ilion made threatening comments about the school while talking to teachers and classmates.

Pathways Academy staff and Ilion police were quickly notified of the incident, police responded immediately and the student was taken into custody.

“All school safety protocols were followed, and it was determined there was no concern that our students or facilities were at risk, so we continued with normal operations,” Herkimer BOCES Chief Executive Officer Mark Vivacqua said. “Any threat is taken seriously by our BOCES, and safety is of the utmost concern. We appreciate the professionalism of the Ilion Police Department in responding to this incident.”

Herkimer BOCES also is aware that there have been general threats made on social media against high schools across the nation in connection to the recent clown sightings. The threat is non-specific in that no area or region was mentioned, however, it is specific in that high schools and today’s date of Sept. 30 were mentioned.

The Herkimer BOCES Health and Safety Service has been in contact with local law enforcement agencies and component school district superintendents in our region. There are no plans to alter daily routines or dismissal times. Schools, however, have been advised to be aware of their perimeter, and law enforcement agencies plan to have road patrols in the vicinity of high schools during dismissal times today.
