Greater Johnstown School District Superintendent Dr. Amy Arcurio provided an update Tuesday on the investigation into the alleged shooting threat that was made Monday afternoon.
Dr. Arcurio says “out of an abundance of caution,” schools will remain closed Wednesday, Jan. 18th.
Officials say local law enforcement has reportedly made “significant headway” in the investigation into who made the threat.
“The individual who perpetrated these threats will be held accountable and every action under the law will be pursued both through the district and through the criminal process. The district does not tolerate threats, regardless of credibility, and will take every action necessary to prosecute and to protect our students,”
“Law Enforcement is actively investigating a specific threat made to the Johnstown School District. All potential threats are given high priority, and the safety of our schools are extremely important,”
