UPDATE: Genesee Valley has confirmed that “normal activities have resumed”, and posted this on social media:

Bolivar-Richburg School issued this statement at noon on Thursday April 20:

In accordance with District emergency management protocols and in cooperation with the New York State Troopers and the Bolivar Police Department, all District buildings have been placed in a temporary lockout. Any outside activities have been moved inside of the building, where normal school operations are continuing. The campus is temporarily closed to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic. All non-emergency visits to the building will be limited until the lockout is lifted. All students and staff are safe and accounted for. We appreciate your patience and cooperation. We will provide detailed follow-up communications shortly.

Earlier, Genesee Valley School issued this statement:

We are currently in a lock out at GVCS. A lock out means that school continues as normal inside the building. Anyone wishing to enter the building, including faculty and staff, needs to show proper ID and check in at the main entrance. We will provide an update when the lock out is over. If you have questions please feel free to call the school.

Scio Central School recently made this announcement:

In accordance with District emergency management protocols and in cooperation with the NY State Police, the Scio Central school has been placed in a temporary lockout. Any outside activities have been moved inside of the building, where normal school operations are continuing. The campus is temporarily limiting all vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
