A bomb threat was found written on a men's bathroom wall at Henry Abbott Technical High School in Danbury this morning. The school was evacuated around 9:30am and students were dismissed for the day. Parents were told to pick up their children from the nearby Shoprite plaza. State and local police helped with the dismissal.
The State Police Emergency Services Unit responded. The unit includes the Bomb Squad, K-9s, and SWAT. The threat was determined to be unfounded after a search of the building.
Troopers cleared the scene around noon.
Danbury school officials say Hayestown Elementary was placed in a soft lockdown as a precaution because of the police activity.
