PELHAM — The school day has returned to normal following a lockdown Wednesday morning at Pelham Memorial School.
In an alert message sent by school Superintendent Bill Furbush at 11:39 a.m. Wednesday, it was reported that a student made a threat at the middle school located at 59 Marsh Road.
Furbush would not give any further details about the threat, but commended the swift response from school administration and Pelham police.
"Working collaboratively, school officials and police were able to determine this was not a credible threat," Furbush said in his statement.
He added that administrators at both elementary and high schools in town also enacted lockdown procedures swiftly in order to keep students at those facilities safe as well.
"The students need to be commended as well for their great response," Furbush said.
Students in grades six, seven and eight attend the middle school.
