Social media threat against a middle school prompts police presence in New Fairfield

A social media threat against New Fairfield Middle School has been determined not to be against the school. Superintedent Pat Cosentino says staff was alerted by students to a video on TikTok stating that there will be a shooting at a middle school on Friday, and the students thought New Fairfield Middle School was being threatened. 

New Fairfield Police researched the video an concluded that the threat is not against the school.  But out of an abundance of caution, and for students’ and staff’s sense of safety, New Fairfield will have an increased police presence at the schools tomorrow. 

District officials spoke with the students and commended them for bringing a serious issues to their attention.  Cosentino urged parents to speak with their kids about social media and the importance of letting an adult know when they see something dangerous or inappropriate. She noted that threats on social media are investigated by the police and are prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
