Dear Parents and Guardians,
At approximately 6:40 pm a staff member received a communication via social media that there would be a cyber and additional threat to the school district for tomorrow. We are working closely with the local police, state police and additional agencies at this time, and expect to have answers and a resolution to this incident as soon as possible. That said, we are living in difficult times and while cyber threats have become more common to school systems due to the increased use of technology, I take any threat to the safety and well-being of my students, faculty and staff very seriously. To that end, the Holbrook Public Schools will be closed tomorrow October 30th so that we can finish collecting data, conclude our investigation and take necessary measures.
I know that during the pandemic any additional school closures unrelated to Covid-19 or weather are difficult to bear, but again, my top priority is the safety of everyone in our learning community and their families. Thank you all for your continued patience and support.
Julie S. Hamilton
