Anonymous Threat at Burlington High

Burlington High School received an anonymous Skype phone call at approximately 12:15 this afternoon threatening the school.
The Emergency Response Team was immediately gathered, which includes school personnel and the Burlington Police Department.  After evaluating the situation, and due to the fact that many other schools in Massachusetts received this type of threat last Friday, and many more today, the police assessment was that this is a low level threat and most likely a hoax.
Students have already been dismissed because of mid-year exams and, as an added layer of precaution,  we have decided to cancel all afternoon activities and dismiss faculty and staff as well.
There will be an increased police presence in the morning and during dismissal times tomorrow and we will update everyone if the situation changes.
