Braintree High School closes early after bomb threat
BRAINTREE, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Braintree High ended the school day before noon Thursday after receiving a bomb threat.
The superintendent's office tells FOX 25 the alleged threat came from two notes. One of the notes was found in a third floor bathroom. The second note was found on a bench outside of a third floor classroom. Investigators say the notes were written in a similar style.
School officials dismissed students at 11:45 a.m. as a precaution. Police conducted a search of the building and did not find a suspicious package.
Afternoon and evening classes held at the high school were also canceled. School officials planned to increase security at the school Friday.
