Letter: Dr. Runner on threat at Mexico MS

November 2, 2021

Dear MACS Family and Community,

On Monday afternoon, a letter that included a specific threat of violence was found inside Mexico Middle School. Upon learning of this, our administration acted immediately to investigate and involve state law enforcement officials.

The student who wrote the letter was quickly identified and has since been suspended from school. The state police are continuing their investigation into the threat.

Please know counseling services have been offered to students and staff impacted by this incident.

We are unable to release further details due to the ongoing investigation and privacy laws, however, if parents have any questions they may reach out to their student’s principal or the superintendent’s office at any time.

We want to thank the New York State Police for their assistance in investigating and for their service to our district and community.

Thank you and have a peaceful evening,
Dr. Donna Runner
Superintendent of Schools
