Windham school leaders meet with parents following two fake threats made to the middle school


Before kids return to school tomorrow, school leaders in Windham met with parents Wednesday night to talk about recent threats against the town’s middle school.

Two juveniles were arrested for the threats.

Both the middle school and an early childhood center were closed Wednesday as a precaution.

Windham’s superintendent says rumors flying on social media Tuesday created unnecessary panic.

She’s urging parents to take action by talking to their kids.
