The School Resource Officer and school administrators determined the school should be evacuated.

A robocall sent to parents said the senior and junior high schools immediately began to implement emergency procedures, including an evacuation of the students to the intermediate and primary schools.

The OCSO said the building was searched with a nitrate detection K-9 dog from the sheriff’s office, as well as a New York State Police K-9 dog.

Police report that nothing was located.

The high school students were dismissed at 1 p.m from the buildings they were sheltered in according to the robocall.

The Victor Central School District made the following statement on its website:

"As most of you probably already know, there was a bomb threat written on a bathroom wall at Victor Senior High School today. Students and staff were immediately evacuated to the Intermediate and Primary Schools, while law enforcement conducted their investigation. The Ontario County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Police have deemed the threat to be unfounded. The District will return to it’s planned schedule tomorrow, Friday, December 6th. Thank you."

The sheriff’s office is still investigating the incident.
