Dear ACS community,

This morning, Thursday, March 30, several area school districts, including two schools in Monroe County, received unfounded threats of violence. 

According to law enforcement, these identical messages did not target any specific building or person(s). This act is a crime known as swatting.  There have been several of these “swatting" calls made throughout the state and region. At this time, we are not aware of any reports impacting ACS. 

The safety of our staff and students is our highest priority. As you are aware, Avon has two School Resource Officers and we are appreciative to the Town, Village, and  School Board for dedicating additional resources to our schools.    

We strive to work collaboratively  to keep everyone safe. I would like to remind our students, staff, and families that if you see anything out of the ordinary in or around our school buildings please inform us. This is an important way that you can help keep our communities safe.

Thank you,

Dr. Ryan Pacatte

Superintendent, Avon Central Schools
