SALAMANCA — Salamanca City Central Schools are closed Monday after the district received a violent and credible threat.

In a post on the school’s website, the district said they were first alerted to the threat around 8:45 p.m. Sunday against students and one of their schools.








“The District was made aware of a specific violent threat directed at Salamanca students and the school by minor students,” the post read. “After consulting with the Salamanca Police Department and the District administration, the threat was deemed credible enough to close schools.”

Since then, all school-related activities have been canceled for the day. The Salamanca BOCES program will also be closed on Monday as a precaution.









The Salamanca Police Department is now investigating. Those with questions are asked to contact the Salamanca Police at (716) 945-2330.
