Good afternoon: Earlier today, after the end of the school day, we received word that a non-specific threat has been made toward a school from a phone somewhere in the Falmouth/Cumberland region. Falmouth Police quickly located the position of the individual who posted this message and took the perpetrator into custody. We have been told that police believe there was no credibility to the threat and that no further threat exists at this time. I am notifying you simply to make you aware that this occurred, and that we continue to work with our local police department to ensure the safety and security of our students and staff. Please excuse the brevity of this message as I am sending this while traveling and do not have access to a computer. I hope you all have an enjoyable and peaceful holiday weekend.
