According to Sheriff Robert Maciol the Sheriff’s Office, in the early morning hours, received a third party report of a concerning post, potentially threatening in nature, on a social media site from a student within the Vernon Verona Sherill School district. The Sheriff’s Office commenced an investigation and notified school officials. Interviews with all involved parties were conducted and it was determined that the threat was non credible.

In an effort to minimize community concerns the Sheriff’s Office has increased their visibility in and around the school, and continues to confer with school officials. If anyone has any questions or concerns they are asked call the Sheriff’s Office.
