GREECE, N.Y. (WHEC) — There will be school resource officers and security professionals on the Greece Odyssey campus Friday after rumors that a weapon will be brought to school circulated on social media and the Greece Central School District became aware on Thursday.

The district said its security personnel worked and a school resource officer from the Greece Police Department have yet to find any evidence that the threat is legitimate, and the person at the center of the rumor does not have access to weapons.

The district said the student’s parents were made aware.

Greece Central is encouraging all students and staff to come to school on Friday, saying in part, "We understand that some may feel anxious but we do not have reason to believe that the rumor circulated today is factual. We have systems in place to keep our schools safe and will continue to investigate any potential threats."
