newtown ct head omeadow elementary school unspecified threat sandy hook shootings

As the other schools in Newtown, Connecticut were about to reopen their doors to students this morning, Head O'Meadow Elementary School received an unspecified threat and was forced to stay close for one more day.

Authorities predicted potential copycat threats and intended to prepare for the worst, so police were at the school as a precaution before the threat was even made.

Thankfully, the other schools in Sandy Hook Elementary's district were scheduled to start two hours late today, so no students were at Head O'Meadow when the threat was made.

No additional info has been released on the specific nature of the new threat.

We continue to keep the victims of Friday's tragic crime and the entire Newtown, CT community in our thoughts and prayers.

    "police were at the school as a precaution before the threat was even made."

    Hum… You got it so wrong :

    “As was predicted by the police that there would be some threats, the police were prepared and have us in lockdown, which is our normal procedure. Due to the situation, students will not come to school today. Please make arrangements to keep them home. All-Star has been notified and will return any students already picked up.”

    When I was in school, we had a bomb threat one day. Everyone was sent home. After that we got bomb threats constantly. It went on for a few weeks until the person making the calls was caught. It was a student. He didn't do the initial threat, but he called the ones afterwords in, because it meant no school.
    I'm sure a lot of threats are going to be made that aren't anything but an evil prank, but it's good that the schools and cops are taking precaution.

    Re: boston61 – Oh get real! I did not lose $3000 on the value of my 401k (since changed to an IRA) under Bush and I got a nice tax refund. I am sure not wealthy, am now living on SS and a small pension, at the time I was working and making a middle class income of about %50,000.
    I voted against Obama this time (fooled me last time) and pay higher taxes and prices.
