A bomb threat targeting the Marbletown Elementary School was discovered in the Rondout Valley High School today, forcing an evacuation of students in the elementary school to the Stone Ridge Community Center.
From a post on the Facebook page of the Rondout Valley Central School District, made around 1:30pm Thursday:
Marbletown Elementary School will be evacuated to the Community Center in Stone Ridge due to a bomb threat that was discovered in the High School targeting Marbletown. Parents of Marbletown students may pick up their child at the Community Center with proper ID. Buses will drop off students from the Community Center to home. Some delay from the regular drop off time may be expected.
The Rondout Valley Central School District has been grappling with threats to the elementary school since last December, when an anonymous threatening letter was sent to the school over winter break.
Since then, the district has received several other threats, including one that placed Marbletown Elementary on lockdown and forced the cancellation of afterschool activities last Friday.
