Written Threat Forces Ridgefield Schools to Close Early
RIDGEFIELD, CT — Ridgefield Public Schools closed early on Thursday, May 30, 2019 after a written threat was called into the schools, according to the following message posted on the Ridgefield Public Schools’ website:
“This morning, Ridgefield High School received a written threat. Administration and Police responded immediately. Out of an abundance of caution, we are dismissing RHS at 9:30am. This dismissal (and the threat) does not affect Scott’s Ridge Middle School. The investigation is ongoing. We thank you for your understanding.”
Editor’s note: The previous version of this article stated there was a bomb threat. This information was reported to CT Buzz by a RHS staff member. The article has been corrected.
