Dear Ticonderoga Central School District Parents and Guardians:
Over the weekend an Instagram post was found directed at the Ticonderoga Middle School, it was shared with the school on Monday morning. The District immediately contacted the local police, who have increased their presence in the district since being notified. The local police are investigating this threat; they have classified this post as a “non direct, non specific, non credible threat” and do not believe the author is from this area. They are continuing the investigation and have referred it to the Social Media Unit.
Secondly, the District was contacted by the State Police who are conducting an operation that has nothing to do with the school. This operation is purely coincidental with the timing of the Instagram post.
All threats to our school and students are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly. If you discover anything that can assist in this investigation, please contact us immediately.
Please feel free to contact my office with any questions or concerns.
John C. McDonald, Jr., Ed. D.
Superintendent of School
