WARE, Mass. (WWLP) – Students at all Ware Junior/Senior High School were ordered to shelter-in-place, early Friday afternoon, after a “threatening message” was found by a student.
School Superintendent Marlene DiLeo told 22News the “threatening language” was found on the bathroom wall by a student around 12:30 p.m. Friday. She said the school then put forth the safety procedures, and all the buildings were put into a shelter-in-place while Ware and State Police investigated the graffiti.
“We wanted to make sure we followed our procedures and protocols and working through any such incident that occurs to us because again, our number one focus is to make sure everybody is safe,” said Dileo.
Ware Police Officer Diana Gliniecki told 22News Ware Police arrested one suspect and someone else could also be charged in this afternoon’s hoax threat. As a result of the investigation, nothing was found and no one was hurt.
