Kingston: Classes will be held despite threatening note

Silver Lake Regional High School in Kingston will be holding classes Thursday, but with increased police presence, after a threatening note was found in a school bathroom Tuesday afternoon stating, “school will blow up on 9/8/2011”.

Kingston Police, along with school officials, are searching the school as a precaution Wednesday.

Principal Richard Kelley says school will be in session for a full day Thursday and there will be a police presence in the building.

Students and staff must enter through the main entrance or the library bus entrance. All other exterior doors will be locked.

Also, no backpacks, large bags, gym bags, equipment bags, instrument cases, or large pocketbooks will be allowed. Any bag brought to school will be searched and could be confiscated.

All after school activities are expected to take place as scheduled.
