THOMASTON, Conn. (WTNH) — Thomaston High School students have been dismissed for the day after a suspicious white powder was found in an art room.
Thomaston police tell News 8 that they are at the school, along with DEEP, working to identify an unknown substance found in the art room. Police say they received the call around noon.
A student emailed News 8 via Report-It claiming the substance as a “white powder.” DEEP officials say they do not believe the substance is anything of concern, but are going to conduct field tests. If the test do not determine what the powder is, it will be sent to a lab for further testing.
As a precaution, students have been dismissed for the day.
News 8 will bring you more information as we receive it.
