BRATTLEBORO, Vt. -
A non-specific threat has prompted extra security and locked doors at schools in the Windham Southeast Supervisory Union district.
In a memo sent out Monday by Brattleboro Town Manager Barbara Sondag, town officials were told Friday that a person, who has made prior threats about ‘school age people,' would be returning to the area. The circumstances surrounding the threat is unknown.
Officials say they are taking the threat seriously and do have a plan in place. They noted that the person involved has not been charged with anything.
The memo also says an automated message from Ron Stahley went out to parents on Sunday alerting them of the incident.
If you notice any suspicious activity, officials ask that you report it to police.
Fox44 & ABC22 will have much more on this story at 6 p.m., 7 p.m. on ABC22 and 10 p.m. on Fox44.
Here is a copy of the memo that went out:
From: Barbara Sondag, Town Manager Public Service Announcement Date: January 28, 2013
On Sunday evening Superintendent Ron Stahley sent a phone message to parents and staff of WSESU alerting them that the school doors would be locked due to safety concerns. Following is additional information regarding the concerns.
On Friday January 25 in the afternoon Town Officials were notified that a person, who had previously made nonspecific threats regarding school age people, might be returning to the area. Taking the threats seriously representatives from Police, Fire and Town Administration met to develop a response plan. Town Officials contacted representatives from the WSESU to alert them to our concerns and have asked them to be extra vigilant during their daily activities, and to notify school personnel of increased patrols by law enforcement.
Since the recent tragedy at Newtown we are extremely sensitive to possible threats to our children and will respond in a proactive manner. While we live in a time that requires us to be watchful, the individual in question has violated no laws and our response must therefore be balanced.
There is no additional information to be released at this time. We ask everyone to be vigilant and to report any suspicious behavior to law enforcement.
