New Milford closes schools due to threat

New Milford public schools are closed today because of unspecified threats.

The New Milford police Department made the announcement on Thursday night, saying that although there had been multiple threats there was no immediate danger to students.

The rumors were investigated and determined to be unsubstantiated, police officials said in a statement, but in light of the mass shootings in Newtown a week ago it was determined to be in the best interests of the community that schools be closed.
