The following message was sent out by the Melrose School Department this morning.
Melrose High School and Middle School is holding a TEMPORARY shelter in place – Please do NOT come to campus.
The High School has received a threat to the building. We know this is a robo-call similar to those received around the state. While we do not feel there is a significant threat, given recent threats to many regional schools, we are acting with a great deal of caution.
We are NOT currently dismissing school. Students are not exiting the building while the police do a sweep and then we plan to resume a normal day.
We are working closely with the police to make sure that the process is orderly and safe.
Please do not come on campus and please do not call as we need to attend to this matter with the police and fire departments.
