WHITE PLAINS - White Plains Superintendent Timothy Connors insists White Plains High School followed proper protocol in a threat case involving the mayor’s son.

On Monday, Mayor Tom Roach's 14-year-old son wrote a note saying a bomb was under a desk. The school was not evacuated and parents were not notified. Parents have accused the school of preferential treatment for Roach.

Connors says parents are not always notified in incidents like this, and they determined it wasn't a case where anyone was at risk. However, he says the school will learn from this moving forward.

Connors says school officials quickly determined there was no bomb and called police. They also phoned the child's parent, and Roach came to the school.

Police determined it was not a criminal matter, but rather a school matter.
