School Officials Say Rumor of Threat to Bring Gun to Amity Middle School Is Unfounded

Officials from Amity Regional School are investigating a rumor about a student who allegedly said that he or she was going to bring a gun to school and Amity Middle School and school officials said they do not believe there is any danger. 

A message sent to parents Monday afternoon says school officials spoke with several students, staff and parents and alerted the superintendent and police as a precaution. 

“At this time we do not believe that there is any danger to the school or our students,” the statement to families said. 

School officials said the resident state trooper for Bethany was at the middle school during the morning arrival time and left soon after school started. 

School administrators have continued to speak with students and no one has reported hearing firsthand a threat made to bring a gun to school or threaten the safety of students, according to school officials who said the incident remains unfounded. 

They ask anyone with first-hand knowledge to email assistant principal Thayer Doyle at or call 203-393-3102.
