A pair of threats Thursday and Friday centered on the Medina school district’s middle schools.

The first arose when a threat was discovered written on the wall of a rest room at Claggett Middle School student.

Medina police increased patrols at the school on Thursday.

Superintendent Aaron Sable said the second threat alert to parents came Friday morning when an Root Middle School student was threatened.

“We were able to identify several students involved and investigated the incident with the Medina and Montville Police Departments,” he said.

Sable said there has been a rash threats since the Florida shootings.

“School safety has been a major issue for schools across the country during the past week,” he told parents in an alert. “I have no doubt that you have seen in the media that many of our surrounding districts are combating similar safety issues. I believe that this is due to copycat situations because of the media coverage as well as students, staff, and parents being more vigilant with recognizing and reporting safety concerns.

“As I have stated previously, ‘It takes a village.’ I encourage our community to continue to be a watchdog for our district and student safety. ‘See Something, Say Something.’”
