A lockdown was put into place at the Penn Yan Middle and High Schools Tuesday morning. Superintendent Howard Dennis says village police received a threat that targeted the school.
Dennis says the drills they practice and protocols that are in place are very important for everyone’s safety.
A 15 year old male student was arrested for making a threat to shoot another student. He was charged with making a terroristic threat, which is a felony. The unidentified teen will appear in Yates County Family Court.
