READFIELD, Maine - The Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office says a Readfield teen has been summonsed for terrorizing after a reported threat at the Maranacook Community Middle and High Schools.
Officials say a 14-year-old girl received a text message Saturday from an unknown person that read, “I’m shooting up the school on Monday.”
After gaining more information, a 15-year-old girl from Readfield was identified and summonsed Monday.
The schools were closed today, but re-opened for after-school activities, including the Haunted Halloween Walk.
Superintendent Jay Charette says there will be law enforcement on campus tomorrow.
All other schools in the district are running as scheduled.
