A suspicious note found Wednesday inside Miller Elementary in New Boston that prompted a school lock-down has been determined by police to be non-threatening.
Police Chief Everette Robbins said the school resource officer and detective bureau worked late into the evening Wednesday and the student who wrote the suspicious note was identified as an 11-year-old Miller Elementary 5th Grader.
The student was located and is cooperating with the investigation.
The initial investigation determined that the suspicious note was not intended by the student to be a threat.
School administration is handling the situation internally with the student and their parents, who are fully cooperative, according to Robbins.
“The note contained some key words that triggered concern and an investigation. In response to any potential threat, we will always take the position to overreact rather than underreact. I do not believe there was ever any threat to the safety of the students in this instance,” Robbins said.
