On the morning of Friday December 10, 2021 a threat was made on the social media app Snapchat. At approximately 9:20 am, DCMO BOCES was alerted and by 9:26 am both the Alan D. Pole Campus and the administration building were both placed on a precautionary hold-in-place.
Safety measures were immediately deployed to all 16 Component Districts communicating the situation and the restricted facility access.. The facilities will remain in precautionary hold-in-place status until a safe dismissal is approved. There will be no afternoon classes at the Alan D. Pole Campus.
District Superintendent Perry T. Dewey stated that the threat requires the deployment of multiple safety processes, “We have our School Resource Officer actively assisting us and we are and will continue to remain in contact with both the Chenango County Sheriff’s Office and the New York State Police, as an active ongoing investigation is currently taking place.”
Updates will be posted at both the DCMO BOCES website at www.dcmoboces.com and also at the organization’s Facebook page.
