Updated: Thursday, Sept. 13 at 1:30 p.m.

Tolland High School was evacuated Thursday after administrators were informed of a potential threat at 8:10 a.m., according to a press release from Principal Dominique Fox.

The threat was written on the wall of a restroom, the release said. Following the school emergency plan, the school was placed on lock-in, until state police arrived at the building. Once emergency personnel arrived, the students were evacuated to the athletic fields in back of the school.

All Tolland schools were placed on a lock-in, as well, the release said.

State police, the Tolland Fire Department and emergency personnel searched the building and determined that it was safe.

The case is still under investigation.
