Police will step up their patrols around Orchard Park schools today in response to a threatening message found written on a bathroom stall in the Middle School at the end of classes Tuesday.

School Superintendent Matthew McGarrity, in a letter to parents posted on the school district website, said that police were contacted immediately to begin an investigation.

He did not disclose the nature of the threat. He asked anyone with information to call police at 662-6444.
