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.
