A local school district is dealing with a series of ongoing, anonymous threats and they're being sent through an app that could be on your child's smartphone.
Students at Bay Trail Middle School in Penfield started getting the threats last week. The district says they continued over the Thanksgiving break and so it released a letter to parents outlining the threats.
Officials say whoever is making these threats is sending them via Snapchat. Snapchat is a social media app that sends messages, pictures and video to other phones, but they only last between one to ten seconds and then they're gone.
The district says the threats started coming on November 26 to several students at Bay Trail. The district says then the threats continued over Thanksgiving. Now the sheriff's office is investigating and the district started part of its security protocol.
