BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) — Security has been tightened at Brattleboro area schools because of a safety concern.
The superintendent of the Windham Southeast Supervisory Union informed parents and staff on Sunday that the school doors would be locked Monday.
Town officials were notified on Friday that a person, who had previously made nonspecific threats involving school age people, might be returning to the area.
Representatives from the police, fire department and the town met to develop a plan.
Since the recent mass shooting at Newtown, Conn., town officials say ‘‘we are extremely sensitive to possible threats to our children and will respond in a proactive manner.’’
School representatives have been asked to be vigilant and to report any suspicious behavior to police.
The front doors will remain locked at all schools on Tuesday.
