Head O'Meadow Closes Tuesday After Reported Threat

Another threat Tuesday preempts Head O'Meadow students' return.

According to reports, an undisclosed threat was made on Head O’Meadow School in Newtown Tuesday morning, prompting the school to close for the day.

Newtown students returned to class Tuesday for the first time since the tragic slaying of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday and after another, anonymous shooting threat (ultimately discovered to be a hoax) was made during a special Mass at St. Rose of Lima on Sunday.

NBC30 is reporting that the school’s staff is safe and accounted for and, due to a two-hour delay in effect district-wide Tuesday morning, no students were in the building at the time the threat was made.

The New Haven Register Tweeted that a Newtown police official confirmed that the school was “placed in lockdown for precautionary measures.”

Calls to the school Tuesday morning went to voicemail.

Forgive Amber's cynicism: Those of us in affected neighborhoods have spent the last 4 days calling the police and also personally running off reporters that have been going door to door searching for the homes of suffering families (with special fervor, it seems, for homes with 2 children involved).

All right , I won't get excited, I'll just ask if you read the books. I read a review by a preacher who read them in order to prepare a strong, informed condemnation. Instead, he found them to be (to my best recollection of his quote) "one of the most beautiful discussions of love,honor and goodness, vs. selfishness, fear and evil" that he'd seen in yr.s. But to your point, the movies did lose some of that and focus to much on the mayhem aspect.
