Late last night, at approximately 11:00, the district became aware of an online threat to Shaker High School. The threat was posted from a “clown” twitter account and was similar in nature to the clown threats that have been reported in national news during the past week. The Colonie police were contacted and searched the area surrounding the high school, junior high school, and Blue Creek Elementary during the overnight hours. The police determined that the threat was not credible. In an abundance of caution, school officials and police did another search this morning, and will continue to maintain a presence on campus throughout the day. The district will send out another update if more information becomes available.
