This was a bad situation. Perhaps the school district should have made a different decision on how to handle this when folks became aware of the threats via Facebook last night. Parents might NOT have sent their kids to school today, given a choice.So sad at a life lost, but glad this whole thing was not worse !

I was unaware of the whole situation until a few minutes ago!! If I had known, my kids would of stayed home! We should of been notified!

It should have been said last night that there was a situation that was going on. What if this "THREAT" would have happened, and the school knowing about it last night did not inform the media and something happened to those children? If something like this EVERY HAPPENS again i want to be told about it before sending my children to school, because if my children get hurt at that school during school hours, there will most def be a law suit. I will not stand by and let my children be hurt because "they feel it was not a big enough threat" to contact the parents or the media about it. Just saying....

If it was posted on Facebook last night as mentioned in previous posts, you did have the option to keep your children home. Were school authorities aware of it last night or just a few parents?

As with everything in Smethport they try to cover everything up hoping people will not learn of what they are doing. They don't care if a child gets killed as long as the little click can protect each other. Same goes on with Smethport Boro.

My kids did stay home. A neighbor went to the school and the door was propped open. So much for the safety of our children.

@ 10:05...Why does everything have to be resolved with a stinking lawsuit. I am a parent who loves their children more than life... why can't we just thank Jesus that nothing terrible happened here and know that the police and school officials were all there today at the school to make sure nothing happened to our children.

It is very sad in today's world that grown people act as they do! I am glad to see this was taken seriously by the authorities . There were threats made on face book to a teacher and her family in Austin a year ago by a parent but were swept under the rug because his wife was on the school board! Luckily nothing happened!

to the person who said the door was propped open @ the school...did they also tell you that there were many police and school officials standing @ doors ....they were there when i dropped mine off and perhaps they knew then that the suspect was deceased and in erie.

For thos of you that are condeming scholl officials you have no idea of how training works for something like this.
Publicizing and promoting just causeing chaos which makes it hader for authorities to handle the situation. If the school was truly unsfae then they would have cancelled.
A decision and plan were made and followed. Right wrong or different it was done and executed. Not as easy as all of you think it is.
It is easy to look back and say things are wrong... if you do you are missing the point. The kids are safe and the threat has passed.

That is the important fact.

As usual, the rumor mill in Smethport continues among some parents. Just like any other small town. The threat was over and done with prior to the start of school even opening. Just because it is on facebook it is true? Contact the school directly as I did this morning and ask in a calm manner for information. Rumors create trouble, always have, always will. Be thankful your child was fine and can go to school on Monday! So many parents don't have this opportunity.

The children at the school were not threatened! If they were, they wouldn't have been allowed to go to school just so they could be in a lockdown! They had it under control and if something was really a threat to them, parent's would have been notified!!!

I can assure you, had they cancelled school you ALL would be complaining in June when you had to make up the day due to a situation that never occurred! People in decision-making positions are always damned if they do and damned if they don't! You should all be thankful for your administration for taking the steps necessary to make the environment safe for your children. Think of the complaints had you all had to take the day off work to stay home with your kids! Oh, that's right....the complainers on Solomon's DON'T work!!

For those of you defending the schools actions they knew about a threat last nite. School employees were told a mandatory meeting was scheduled for today at 7:15. The topic was the threat. People could have been notified last nite and then its up to the parents discretion.

With all the school shootings that have happened recently, I feel that the school personnel did a horrible job at handling this. They have a system to text or call parents when games are canceled, but not one for THREATS?! They didn't want to worry parents and students because tonight was homecoming. I'm sorry but if they found him at 7:15 this morning in Erie, it would have taken them at least another hour to identify him and realize they should call Smethport. Meaning that students were already arriving at the school BEFORE they knew it was SAFE. They're all just sitting ducks up there and the school tried to cover it up. I personally would have liked to have known before I sent my kids on the bus.
