Police, Schools Investigate Haverhill High School Bomb Threat

A criminal investigation is under way into an alleged bomb threat against Haverhill High School this morning.

Superintendent James F. Scully, in a statement released late this morning, said the high school received a bomb threat today, but did not provide specific information. However, Haverhill Police Detective Lieutenant Robert P. Pistone, police spokesman, told WHAV local police responded to a “robo call” made to the school and it is not considered credible.

“We believe this was a low-level threat and no evacuation was made at this time,” Pistone said. State police also responded to assist “as a precaution.”

Scully, citing the investigation, added further information would be provided when possible.

“We are working closely with the Haverhill Police and following the protocols established by the Massachusetts State Police Bomb Threat Response Guidelines to determine the appropriate course of action,” Scully said.

This is a developing story.
