At the end of the day March 29th, the Middle School received a non-specific threat just prior to school dismissal. The Orwell Police were called immediately., and a investigation was initiated. Coincidentally and nearly simultaneously the fire department was called and asked to check an odor near one of the school's gas regulators. No leak was found, and the 2 events were unrelated.
For the safety of the school we dismissed the Elementary as fast as possible and had all the staff and students leave school campus and go home. We also are canceling the Middle School Dodge Ball Tournament this evening. We will reschedule after the Spring Break.
Enjoy your Spring Break!
