Good morning, We want to inform you about a security concern that came to our attention this morning, and we take the safety of our students and staff very seriously. Please be assured that we worked closely with local authorities to investigate the matter thoroughly. As a precautionary measure, we implemented additional security measures on campus with a hold in place. After thorough investigation, it was determined that the concern was not substantiated and there was NO threat to our school community. We understand the concern this may cause, and we want to reassure you that we are committed to maintaining a safe and secure learning environment. We encourage you to talk with your children about the importance of reporting any suspicious activity and remind them of our school’s emergency procedures. We have addressed the above concern and assure you that it has been taken care of. We want to thank the Elmira Heights Police Department, the Chemung County Sheriff's Department, our staff, and our students for handling this morning’s situation so professionally. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. -EHCSD
