Evening activities canceled after threat found at Grafton middle school

Threat found at Grafton middle schools

GRAFTON — Students at a Grafton middle school were sent home early on Thursday, October 13th — after a threatening note was found.

It happened just before 2:30 p.m. when a teacher found the message on a bathroom stall at John Long Middle School.

Students and staff were evacuated as is protocol — and all evening activities were canceled.

Grafton police are now investigating to determine whether classes will resume on Friday.

    Not sure where this story is from and why. I worked at John Long today as a substitute. The school did not evacuate at or near 2:30. The bell rang at the regular time 2:41 and students left classes to go to their lockers and home. If there was an evacuation it happened way later. Who did this investigation? They need to check their sources.

    Who investigated this? I worked at John LONG middle school in Grafton today. “Students sent home early” There was no evacuation before school let out. The bell rang at 2:41 as always and students headed home. Someone writing this might think about doing a clearer job sometime.
