A Snapchat threat made by a suspended student of Frontier Central High School prompted the district Wednesday afternoon to send an email alert to parents, said C. Douglas Whelan, interim superintendent at Frontier Central School District.
The 10th-grade student threatened harm to students, staff and to the high school building located at 4432 Bayview Road on the Town of Hamburg, Whelan said.
Whelan said the threat was discovered on Snapchat shortly after 2 p.m. Wednesday by the school principal. The student was serving a five-day suspension when he posted the threat on Snapchat, possibly on Tuesday, he said.
The mother of the suspended student was asked to pick the student up from the Alternative High School at Erie 1 BOCES, which suspended students are required to attend. School Resource Officer Dennis Horrigan then met the mother and student at their home, Whelan said.
