Duxbury police investigating 'threatening' note at elementary school

·1 min read

DUXBURY – A threatening note found Wednesday at Alden Elementary School in Duxbury sparked a police investigation and presence at the school Thursday.

Administrators and police officers spent Wednesday afternoon trying to figure out who wrote the "non-specific, yet threatening" note, interim Superintendent Danielle Klingaman said in a letter to parents.

"At this time, we do not know the note’s source but are continuing to investigate in order to determine its origin," she said in the letter.

Police officers were sent to the school Thursday "out of an abundance of caution," she said in the letter.

Neither police officers nor school administrators felt there was an "immediate" threat to students or staff, they said.

Administrators will continue to work with the police department to "fully investigate" the note, but won't say anything else about it or the investigation, Klingaman said in the letter.
