Cary District 26 notifies parents of alleged threat made by student

CARY – Parents of students at Deer Path Elementary in Cary were notified Friday that a student allegedly threatened to harm another student.

According to an email sent to parents obtained by the Northwest Herald, Cary School District 26 Superintendent Brian Coleman said police were immediately contacted regarding the matter. The district and police worked together and “addressed the situation directly with the student and the student’s parents,” according to the email.

Coleman’s email said police determined the threat was not legitimate, and there is no further concern regarding the safety of Deer Path students.

District 26 board President Scott Coffey confirmed there was “a situation” at Deer Path, and the “district erred on the side of caution, given everything that’s occurred recently.” Coffey declined to give more details, deferring questions to Coleman.

Calls to Coleman and Cary Police Department officials were not immediately returned Friday.
