In response to the reported bomb threat at Shelton High School yesterday, Shelton Superintendent of Schools Freeman Burr just posted the following note on the district's website:
"Good afternoon students, staff, parents and community members:
Yesterday afternoon at approximately 1:20 PM an unidentified male caller left an anonymous voice message at the Shelton Public School’s Central Office. The message was forwarded to my extension and I was called out of a meeting to listen to the message.
The caller, using a disguised voice, made reference to Shelton High School although the description of SHS was only partially accurate. The caller referred to a vehicle at SHS. A description of the vehicle was provided as well.
The Shelton Police Department was contacted and dispatched to SHS. SHS administration instituted emergency procedures while SPD and staff conducted a thorough search.
It was determined that the alleged threat lacked credibility. The Emergency Drill lasted approximately 15 minutes and dismissal buses departed beginning at 2:15 PM.
Feel free to contact me directly if you have any further questions or concerns.
The district can be reached at 203-924-1023.
