Threat Assessment Update
Good Morning,
On Monday, March 7 at approximately 8:00 a.m., a note was discovered in a classroom that resulted in a particular location in the school to be searched. District Administration acted promptly to contact the Marlborough Police Department who then contacted Marlborough Fire Department and the Massachusetts State Police. A thorough search of the areas of concern was conducted and nothing was found.

There was an abundance of care and caution taken to ensure the safety of all students and staff in the building during this time. School will be resuming normal operations but there will be a police presence on campus for the remainder of the day. The Marlborough Police Department is continuing to conduct an investigation to identify the origin of the note.
