DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. - Police beefed up security throughout the Dobbs Ferry School District on Monday after a pair of high school students posted a perceived threatening video on social media.

Officials confirmed that they were investigating two Dobbs Ferry High School students who posted a video that was determined to be inappropriate and threatening toward the Springhurst Elementary School.

The threat was reportedly directed toward the school, and was not specific to any students.

On Friday, the school district and police department issued a joint statement to parents, alerting them that they were working together to take the necessary precautions to ensure that students and staff were safe.

The names of the suspects have not been released due to their potential status as underage offenders. It is unclear if any charges have been filed against the two students.

Keep following Daily Voice for more information about Friday’s threat as it becomes available.
