A bathroom at John F. Kennedy Middle School in Enfield is closed off after white powder was found in a bathroom and school officials said they have been told it did not seem to be suspicious.
School officials said they were notified of the incident Wednesday afternoon, emergency authorities were immediately called and students were directed away from the bathroom where the material was found.
Emergency personnel told school officials the materials did not seem suspicious, but the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection should be called out of an abundance of caution, a post on the school district Facebook Page says.
School officials said they were told to block off the bathroom, but the building did not need to be evacuated.
The blue house bathroom is inaccessible to students while this area is under investigation.
No students or staff members were in any danger, school officials said. It’s not yet clear what the substance was.
