AMESBURY – A series of threats made against Amesbury Middle School over several days were deemed to not be credible, according to a statement by Principal Michael Curry.
The announcement Tuesday night came only hours after school administrators met with Amesbury police that afternoon to analyze the threats made against the school in the sixth-grade girls bathroom and through social media.
"This has been an ongoing investigation that the police were actively involved with over the past five days," Curry said in his statement. "The police department uses threat analysis protocol to determine the level of the threat and if any further safety precautions need to be implemented while the investigation proceeds."
Curry said police determined that students and school staff were never in danger.
"None of the threats were credible," he added.
The statement goes on to say there were three threats made by the same student over four days.
"Once again, as a result of the facts collected throughout this ongoing investigation there is no credible threat and students and staff members are safe to attend school. If at any point during the investigation there was a safety risk for students or staff to attend school, school administration would not be sending out a message to families stating it is safe to come to school," Curry's statement reads.
Amesbury police officers were at Amesbury Middle School on Wednesday morning providing support for students, Curry added.
