Weymouth: “Non-specific” threat called into high school

Just three minutes before Weymouth High School students were dismissed from classes Wednesday afternoon, an unknown person called in a threat. Weymouth School Superintendent Dr. Kenneth Salim called it a “non-specific” threat.

Students were immediately sent home after Weymouth High School received the call at 2:15PM.

After school activities and sports were cancelled because once police arrived, they ordered the evacuation of the high school campus to investigate the threat.

Superintendent Salim said Weymouth police didn’t find anything suspicious in the building or on the school campus.

The investigation into who the caller is that made the threat against Weymouth High School is ongoing.
