Students at Mount Washington’s Consentino Middle School will see an increased police presence Wednesday after a juvenile used social media to threaten to attack a classroom peer with a weapon.

Consentino Principal John Mele said the Tuesday night message was issued and immediately dealt with by school authorities and Haverhill Police. Officers will have a more visible presence on campus Wednesday to ensure safety for all students.

“The increased presence does not signify danger but rather an outward display of support for the safety of all students,” Mele said.

In a message to parents, Principal Mele called the conflict an “isolated incident.”
