Rumors about a potential safety threat to Newtown High School have been deemed to be unfounded, according to a post on Newtown High School’s Facebook page.
“When a group of students were overheard discussing issues that had the potential to impact school safety, concerned students (who we applaud), made sure that this information was reviewed by local authorities,” Principal Dr. Lorrie Rodrigue posted on Facebook.
The post said that the issue occurred over spring break and it was brought to the attention of Newtown Police and Newtown High School security.
“We want to assure you that we are confident that staff and students are safe at Newtown High School. In the future, I want to commend and encourage any student who brings forward information that continues to contribute to the safety, security, and welfare of all members of our school community,” Rodrigue wrote.
