MEDINA – Medina School Superintendent Jeff Evoy has sent a recorded message to parents notifying them that a student has been suspended after allegedly threatening to harm other students on Monday.

Evoy said he was advised late Friday evening of the alleged threat and  suspended the student and also contacted the Medina Police Department.

“It is my understanding that a criminal investigation remains on-going,” Evoy states on the District’s website. “The District has suspended the student from school and is moving forward with a discipline proceeding regarding the alleged conduct.  To protect the integrity of the investigation and proceeding, the District cannot provide further comment at this time.”

Evoy said the school will continue to cooperate with the law enforcement agencies to ensure the safety and security of all students and staff.

“Please know that the safety of students and staff is our number one priority,” he said. “Any threats will be dealt with in a serious manner.”
