Easton school evacuated, college classes cancelled after Stonehill College bomb threat.

Martin McGovern, the school’s director of communications, issued a statement saying state, local and campus police are searching the campus, “out of an abundance of caution.” “Students and staff have been advised of the threat and ongoing search and have been given the option to leave campus or remain in residence halls,” McGovern said. The Enterprise reports that a threatening message found in a bathroom located inside an administrative building at the college has led to a search of the campus. According to a letter to parents from Easton Superintendent Andrew Keough, students at Moreau Hall were taken to the Oliver Ames High School auditorium for immediate pickup and dismissal. Keough added the decision was made on the recommendation of the Easton Police Department and there is no threat towards any Easton schools or students. We hope and expect that the search will be concluded by later today and campus life will return to its regular schedule this weekend,” McGovern said.

In a mass emailing, Keough assured parents that all steps were being taken are with “an abundance of caution in the name of keeping our children and staff safe.” The children, who are as young as 5-years-old, were told why they were being moved but school officials will help parents explain the incident to their children.
