Medway High School Locked Down After Threats

Medway High School in Medway, Massachusetts was briefly put on lockdown on Wednesday afternoon after the school received two phone calls with threats to student safety. Superintendent Armand Pires, Principal John Murray, and Police Chief William Kingsbury have reported that the Medway Police Department is investigating the incident.

As soon as the threats were received, the school was put into lockdown in accordance with pre-established policies and procedures. The police responded immediately and conducted a search of the building and premises. Afternoon dismissal was briefly delayed while the search and investigation were ongoing. Just before 3 p.m., the police determined that the school was safe, and students were released to be picked up by buses and their parents.

Lockdown Procedures Followed as Medway Police Investigate Threats

All afternoon and evening activities at the high school were canceled out of an abundance of caution. However, school operations and dismissal at McGovern Elementary, Burke-Memorial Elementary, and Medway Middle School continued as normal.

Medway High School will be held as scheduled on Thursday, and while there is no indication of any ongoing threat to the school community, Medway Police will have an additional presence at the high school as a precautionary measure.

The incident remains under investigation by the Medway Police Department, and officials do not currently have reason to believe that the threats are credible. All students and staff are safe, and the school district is working with law enforcement to ensure the safety of all students and staff.
