Online Threat Closes ConVal Schools For a Day


All schools in the Con-Val Regional School District were closed today because of an online threat of school violence.


At 6 this morning, Superintendent Kimberly Rizzo Saunders received a call from Peterborough police that they were investigating reports of a school shooting threat posted on social media.


School buses already en route to school turned back and delivered students home.


The superintendent told the Monadnock Ledger Transcript that police interviewed three Con-Val High School students believed to be involved in posting the threat. 


In a press release, the Con-Val Regional School District said the threat has been addressed and schools will be open tomorrow.
