MHS victim of “swatting”

Email this morning from the Superintendent and Police Chief to school families –

Dear Medfield Families,

The Medfield Police Department received a phone call this morning that referred to a possible violent act at Medfield High School. The Medfield Police responded immediately, assessed the situation, and determined it was a hoax. All of our students and staff are safe. Many area communities received the same “swatting call” this morning. The purpose of these phone calls is to disrupt the school day with threats of violence while tying up local law enforcement. The Medfield Police did not recommend a “lockdown” at Medfield High School based on the information from multiple area police departments that received this same swatting call earlier than Medfield. 

The Medfield Police and Medfield Public Schools are always in constant communication and have a collaborative approach to ensure the safety and well-being of all students and staff.  We remain committed to working together to provide a safe, secure, and comfortable learning environment for all students.
