Police will increase their presence at Cheshire High School Tuesday after someone found a threatening message scrawled in a bathroom.
Jeff Solan, Cheshire High School Principal, told police the message read "people will die in school on October 2nd according to the Mayans", authorities said.
The message was written sometime Monday afternoon, according to police.
Solan sent a letter to parents with details about the message and the added police presence. In addition to a resource officer, Cheshire Police will have extra officers at the school throughout the day.
"We are going to make sure nothing happens tomorrow and if, God forbid, anything does, we want to already be in the building and ready to intervene, said a spokesperson for Cheshire Police.
