"At 2:05 p.m. this afternoon, a phone call was received at Hawley School containing an implied threat to the Hawley staff and students. In addition to the on-site security, other representatives of the Newtown Police Department and Chief Michael Kehoe arrived at Hawley. They requested that Superintendent John Reed put the school system in modified lockdown," the superintendent's office said in an email sent to parents.
Students at the schools were released approximately 35 minutes late because of the lockdown.
