Nantucket Schools Closed
All Nantucket Public Schools are closed today following rumors on social media Sunday night of a shooting threat.
The Inquirer and Mirror reports that police and school officials didn’t believe the threat was credible, but closed the schools anyway to allow police to further investigate.
The Nantucket Community Pool and Nantucket Community School are also closed today, as are Nantucket Lighthouse School, the New School and Small Friends Preschool.
Last week there was bomb threat called into the schools, but officials don’t believe that call was credible either; nonetheless the FBI is assisting with that investigation.
Classes are expected to resume on Tuesday with an increased police presence,
