Bomb threat cancels events at Trumbull HS

A threatening message found on the wall of a girls’ bathroom at Trumbull High School on Thursday afternoon led to the cancellation of all evening activities at the school.

Trumbull High is open and operating normally this morning and Lt. Leonard Scinto, the police department spokesman, said no device was found after a thorough check of the campus on Thursday.

The message, found at 4:30 p.m. Thursday made reference to a bomb, prompting a response from members of the State Police bomb squad and canine unit, Scinto said.

Trumbull police and the town fire marshal also went to the scene.

First Selectman Timothy Herbst said Thursday night that he has been in touch with Chief Thomas Kiely.

“Everything is under control at Trumbull High School,” Herbst said in an e-mail. “Earlier today we had reports of evidence of a bomb threat. Trumbull and State Police responded accordingly. They are in the process of checking the building with K-9 units to make sure the building is absolutely safe for tomorrow.

“Parents, rest easy tonight knowing that we are doing everything possible to make sure your kids are safe.”
