NEW MILFORD -- Town officials have cancelled school Friday as a result of multiple threats received in the days following the massacre at Sandy Hook School in Newtown.
While police said there was no immediate danger to the students, "there have been an abundant amount of rumors and threats circulated around our schools," according to a statement released by the New Milford Police Department Thursday evening.
"The New Milford Police Department has investigated all these rumors and determined they were unsubstantiated," the statement said.
However, authorities added that "given the recent events in the state of Connecticut concerning the safety and well being of our students, the New Milford Police Department recommended to the superintendent's office that it was in the best interest of the community" to cancel school on Friday.
The decision was based on the magnitude of recent events and our present circumstances," according to the statement.
Sgt. James Brady said Thursday evening that no arrests have been made in connection to any threats.
