WINDHAM —  Windham High School Principal Vanessa Sosa informed parents Thursday afternoon that school officials and local police are investigating a threatening note found Thursday.

Windham Public Schools posted a message on Facebook stating afterschool activities for students were suspended as a precaution.

“State and local police are sweeping through the building Thursday after school and again on Friday to be sure it is safe for all students. School administrators do not anticipate any change in Friday’s school schedule,” said police.

The school sent out an update around 10 a.m. Friday saying the building was swept by state and local police twice. They concluded the threat was not credible. The school says all the necessary precautions were taken, and the building is safe for students, staff, and the community.

But then, a second note was found. Officials evacuated the school and did a third sweep but found the threat to be unfounded. Classes resumed just after 12 p.m.
