Just received official word from Maine Department of Education that the reports of school violence this morning are believed to a hoax.
Good morning, We are aware of several regional threats to area schools. I was in communication with the Westbrook Police Department and area schools immediately. There were no reports or threats to any of the schools in Westbrook. As a precaution, Westbrook Police provided additional officers at all of our schools and staff ensured that all exterior doors were locked and attended. If information changes or a different response is necessary, we will be in touch. Take care, and be strong! Peter Lancia, Superintendent of Schools
