Earlier this evening, a note indicating a bomb threat was discovered at Billerica Memorial High School. The Billerica Police Department was immediately notified and began conducting an investigation. The information we have does not lead us to believe that this threat is credible. However, in an overabundance of caution, we have taken steps this evening and will take additional steps tomorrow to ensure the safety of all of our students and staff. Part of these steps will include a search of the building prior to students’ arrival. In addition, extra security presence will be provided throughout the school day.
As this is an ongoing investigation, please understand that we cannot provide any further details at this time. However, the security measures we are putting in place are designed to ensure that all of our students can conduct normal school business as they would on any other day.
We will update parents and the community as more information becomes available.
