A Vernon middle school student is accused of making threatening comments involving other students Thursday.
Police said they were called in to investigate a potential threat at Vernon Center Middle School after a student who overheard the threat reported it.
School officials and police investigated and determined the threat was not credible. The student who made the comments were referred to juvenile authorities and will face discipline at school.
“The safety and security of students is the highest priority for School and Police officials. Vernon Police and Vernon School officials regularly collaborate to ensure our schools remain safe environments,” police said in a media statement.
