MEDINA — The school district stayed open today after the Medina Police Department investigated a social media post that told kids to stay home because of possible violence at the school, District Superintendent Mark Kruzynski wrote in a letter to the community.

The district was made aware of the social media post at about 6:45 this morning.

The distract has had enhanced security throughout the day “to ensure the continual safety of our students and staff,” Kruzynski said. “The safety and security of all our students and staff is our top priority.”

Batavia city schools closed today “out of an abundance of caution” following threats of violence that were made over social media.
