FRAMINGHAM – A stay in play at Framingham High has been lifted, just before noon, today December 9..

Around 11 a.m. Framingham Police “we “received information that an individual waiting for the MWRTA bus, outside of school property, made a threatening statement about FHS to a passerby,” said Framingham Police spokesperson Lt. Rachel Mickens.

“This individual got onto the MWRTA bus and has since been identified by police,” said Lt. Mickens.

“The specifics of what was allegedly said and other details are currently under investigation,” said Lt. Mickens.

“As a precaution there will be an increased police presence at the school this afternoon,” said Lt. Mickens.

“Students at Framingham High School have been asked to stay in place due to a community based situation that Framingham first responders are currently managing teachers can continue teaching, but the hallways must remain clear,” announced the high school administration.

The alert went out around 11 a.m. and was lifted before noon.

“No one is allowed to enter or exit the building. Please do not email call or approach the school building until further notice,” said the announcement from FHS staff to parents.

A second email/texting the stay in place was lifted was issued just before noon.

An earlier version of this news report stated police were searching for a suspect outside the physical high school building, that was true, but the search for the individual was linked to the high school.
