As Monsey Scoop reported earlier this morning, The Suffern Central School District has issued a statement regarding the incident at Suffern High School this morning. The school received a swatting call, which is a hoax message designed to provoke a response from law enforcement. School authorities are currently collaborating closely with the Ramapo Police Department to ensure the safety and security of the school premises.
In the statement released by the school district, it was emphasized that all students at Suffern High School are safe. Nevertheless, the incident has led to significant delays in school bus operations throughout the entire district. Parents and guardians are advised to anticipate delays in their child’s morning bus commute.
The statement also conveyed the district’s appreciation for the patience of parents and guardians as they work to gather additional information about the situation. The district pledged to provide further communication regarding bus routes as it becomes available.
Despite the delays in bus transportation, all elementary schools and the middle school in the Suffern Central School District remain open and operational. Non-bus riding students are encouraged to arrive at school as scheduled. Parents have the option to personally transport their children to school this morning if it is feasible.
It’s important to note that no student will be marked as tardy today at any school within the district due to the bus delays. While bus routes will continue to operate, they are expected to be delayed.
The Suffern Central School District and local authorities are actively addressing this incident to ensure the safety and well-being of students and staff. Further updates will be provided as more information becomes available.
