Bedford High School and Ross A. Lurgio Middle School were closed Monday morning after the high school received a threat.
According to Mike Fournier, the superintendent of BHS, the school's administration received a written note with information about doing harm at a specified period of time at 10:00 a.m. Monday morning.
The Bedford, New Hampshire police as well as the administration at the two schools decided to dismiss students. Police assisted the schools with an orderly and safe dismissal, Fournier said.
"Our top priority is student safety followed by accurate parent communication," Fournier said.
The superintendent asks parents to speak with their students about the "see something/say something policy" so that their schools can continue to be safe and secure.
Fournier says BHS plans on having a normal school day Tuesday.
