Binghamton School Locked Down After Threatening Call
Seton Catholic Central High School on Binghamton's West Side was searched today following a threatening telephone call.
Principal Richard Bucci says students were kept in place starting around 10:30 this morning after the main office received the call.
Police were called to the school to provide support and guidance as staff searched the building and lockers. Bucci says nothing was found that posed a potential threat.
Parents of the school's 375 students were notified by an automated system.
Bucci says the "all clear" was given at about 12:50 this afternoon.
The principal says although school officials believed the call most likely was a prank, it had to be taken seriously and a comprehensive search was conducted to ensure the safety of those in the building.
