Following bomb scares at Bristol Central and Bristol Eastern high schools last week, today, there was a bomb scare at Northeast Middle School, police reported.
Police said at approximately 12:34 p.m., police and fire personnel responded to Northeast Middle School, 530 Stevens St., for a reported bomb threat.
Police said a student found a note stating a bomb was set to go off in the building.
Police said students and faculty were evacuated from the building, while police secured the building and immediate area. Police said once the building was evacuated, a decision was made by school administrators to let students go home early. Parents were notified and students were transported home by bus, said police.
At this time, approximately 3 p.m. on Tuesday, the scene is active and the state police bomb squad was called for assistance in searching the building. Bristol’s Criminal Investigation Division is also on scene investigating the incident.
There were no reported injuries.
Police said once more information is available it will be released.
