Dear Maryvale Community,

I have been made aware that social media is mentioning rumors of a threat to the high school. I want to assure the community that we take all situations that may affect the safety of our school very seriously and we follow through on all avenues to determine credibility.

I want to be sure our school community members hear the facts from me. 

Both the Cheektowaga Police and the HS administration worked with a student and family about some comments that were made by the student.  The comments were of a threatening nature. After a thorough investigation and also a complete search of school premises and the student’s home, we determined that there was no credible threat to the school. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me today.
