On November 21, 2019 9:21 pm the Town of Hyde Park Police received a report of a threat made at Franklin Delano Roosevelt High School. Someone posted a picture on social media of a bathroom wall at FDR stating there was going to be a shooting tomorrow.

Detectives were able to track down where the post originated from and that student was interviewed by the SRO and Detective. Officers reviewed countless hours of video surveillance with the assistance of high school administrators. At this point, the threat has been deemed not credible prior to opening of school.
