HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Hartford Police responded to the S.A.N.D. school Friday following a threat that was received by a school student.
Hartford Deputy Chief Brian J. Foley tweeted out that a “vague unsubstantiated social media threat was received by a Sands student.” S.A.N.D. staff evacuated students. Hartford Police and School security swept the building as a precautionary measure. Students were allowed back into the building Friday afternoon.
S.A.N.D. is also experiencing a power outage, as are other schools in the North End of the capital city including Milner and Achievement First. Lt. Foley says the power outage is not related to the threat report.
