According to Oneida County Sheriff, Robert Maciol, the Madison-Oneida BOCES in Verona was put into a "Lockout" for a brief period of time this morning. A lockout is when a school secures it's doors due to a possible threat to the building or in the area of the building. Access to and from the building is restricted and the staff is put on heightened alert. Classroom instruction continues as normal. The school went into a lockout at approximately 8:45 am, after an irate parent called the school and made some verbal threats. The school, which was conducting State Regents Exams, decided to go into a lockout for precautionary measures while the SRO of the school conducted his investigation into the matter. A short time later, the subject was interviewed and the threat was found to be non-credible. The school then lifted the lockout at approximately 10:40 am. No students or staff were in danger at any point. This matter is still under investigation.
