Manchester Update

6.11.19

Dear RSU14 Community,

Thank you for your patience and understanding regarding today’s evacuation of students from the Manchester School. Our prime concern is always the safety of our students and staff.

Late this morning, a student reported to a teacher that they had found a suspicious message in one of the restrooms about a bomb. Manchester administrators, working with Windham Police, investigated the message and made the determination to err on the safe side and evacuate students to the high school.

The Windham Police Department and State Police have conducted a thorough search of the Manchester building. No evidence of a bomb or makings of a bomb was found at the building. The building has been cleared and will remain locked until tomorrow morning.

Windham Police will continue to work with the administrators at Manchester school to determine who wrote the message. If your son or daughter has any information, we ask that you please reach out to Ms. Donnini, Ms. Vargo-Ward, or officer Cyr.

All students have been served lunch and are with their classroom teachers. Student backpacks are at the Manchester School and students can get them tomorrow morning.

Manchester students will be dismissed from Windham High School at the normal time. Busses may be up to 10 minutes late this afternoon. Parents picking up students will need to enter the Canopy entrance and show identification for dismissal. The SACC Program will be held this afternoon in the closed Café at Windham High School.

RSU14 would like to thank the staff at the Manchester School and Windham High School for preparing, transporting, and feeding the students today during this time.
