    Dodd Middle School in Cheshire

    The shelter-in-place has been lifted at Dodd Middle School in Cheshire after a threat and police said they are confident there is no credibility to that threat.

    Police said earlier that the school administration received “notification against Dodd.”

    On Friday afternoon, they released the statement the Board of Education sent to the parents of Dodd students:

    “I am pleased to let you know that Dodd Middle School has been restored to a normal school operating mode. As we reported earlier, the school was put into a lockdown because of a report we received that a student had made a threat against the school. Based on their investigation, the Cheshire Police have concluded that there is no credible threat against staff, students, or the school. Students will be dismissed at their normally scheduled time of 2:44 pm today”.

    Cheshire police remain at Dodd Middle School and are continuing to investigate the threats, but said they are confident that there was no credibility to the threat.
