Floyd receives social media threat

The William Floyd School District received an anonymous online threat on Sept. 13 for Sept. 14, for both William Floyd High School and William Paca Middle School. After discovering the threat, the district remained on lockout, which superintendent Kevin Coster said is normal procedure. Suffolk County police were on premises Friday as a precaution, but school officials and police did not feel there was a significant threat to the safety of students. “Please know that schools would be closed if the district or the police believed there to be any imminent danger to students or staff,” the district wrote on Facebook. Police are continuing an investigation and said there were no arrests made at the schools on Friday. The school district said they were unable to comment any further.
