Tremblay said a statement will be going out to parents shortly.
Just after 9 a.m. the following statement went out:
“Last night police received a report of a threat on social media of a school shooting. The threat was generic in nature and did not target a specific school, nor did it reference the City of Framingham. Police have investigated the matter and have concluded that the threat is not credible and originated out-of-state,” said the email to parents from the public school district.
“As always, our primary concern is for the safety and security of our students and our staff. We are cooperating fully with the local authorities’ investigation. All schools are open and operating as usual,” said the statement.
