Superintendent: Threat at
Salamanca School Not Credible

Graffiti making threats in a bathroom at Salamanca Junior Senior High School raised concerns today, but the school district superintendent says the threats were not credible.

Robert Breidenstein says no one at the school was in any danger, but they did contact Seneca Nation of Indians Marshals and the Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office for support.

On the district’s website and Facebook page, Breidenstein wrote that in “a social media world misinformation can travel at viral speed.” He went on to say that an unspecified threat was written on a bathroom wall, but no names were mentioned.

He added that additional security protocols are being implemented to insure the safety of all students. This includes requesting photo ID from all visitors, increased security presence on campus and requiring entry through only the main entrance.
