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

EASTON, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts college has canceled classes for the day “out of an abundance of caution” after receiving an unspecified threat. 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. A spokesman for Stonehill College in Easton on Friday said all classes and activities were canceled and staff and students have been given the option of either leaving campus of staying inside their dorms.

Easton Deputy Police Chief Keith Boone said there was no threat to the elementary school, but students were evacuated as a precaution to Oliver Ames High School, where they will be dismissed. The spokesman says “we hope and expect that the search will be concluded by later today and campus life will return to its regular schedule this weekend.” 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.
