Police were on the scene at Hudson high School late Tuesday morning, for a reported bomb threat. Hudson Police say, a note was found. Police are investigating video tape from the scene.
Statement from school officials:
Late on Tuesday morning, March 6, 2018, the Hudson City School District administration was made aware of bomb threats written on masking tape inside two boys’ bathrooms at Hudson Senior High School. We immediately initiated a shelter-in-place at the Junior/Senior High School campus and contacted police to investigate. Law enforcement responded quickly and performed a full sweep of the campus, moving students and staff as needed. No bombs or explosive materials were found on the premises during this check. At this time, police have determined the building to be safe, therefore clearing students and staff to return to normal activities.
Please know that safety is of the utmost importance to the Hudson City School District. Although police believe this not to be a credible threat, the situation continues to be investigated by school authorities and law enforcement. Threats against schools are treated very seriously, and students who are determined to have made such threats face consequences through our school's Code of Conduct, as well as potential legal consequences.
We thank the Hudson Police Department, Columbia County Sheriff's Department, New York State Police and Greenport Police for their swift action during this emergency response protocol. If you have any questions, please contact the district office at 518-828-4360, ext. 2101.
