Harrisburg, Pa (October 18, 2022) — State Senator Carolyn Comitta today released the following statement in response to repeated threats targeting Coatesville Area School District schools:

“I am deeply concerned by the series of threats targeting Coatesville schools. While all credible threats must be taken seriously, these are especially troubling given their repetitive nature coupled with recent reports of violence in the Coatesville community.

My office is regularly communicating with the school district and law enforcement. We are working to identify available state resources to support the community, hold those responsible accountable, and help ensure that schools stay open as safe, healthy places for young people to learn and grow.

Students, parents, teachers, and the entire Coatesville community deserve stability, safety, and peace of mind.”
