Four Southington schools in the Pleasant Street region have been placed on secure school status until further notice as a precaution. Southington High School, DePaolo Middle School, Hatton Elementary School, and Flanders Elementary School have temporarily suspended outside activities after someone threatened a staff member.
An alert was sent to parents from Southington’s Superintendant of Schools Tim Connella. The alert said that someone from outside the schools made the threat, but there is no threat inside any of the schools. The four schools will operate normally inside the buildings, but no one will be allowed to enter.
Reports indicate that Southington police have added patrols in the area.
