The office of the Superintendent of Schools confirmed Monday that Newtown schools were placed in "modified lockdown" in the afternoon. They did not elaborate on the nature of the threat.
At 2:05 pm a phone call was received at Hawley School issuing an "unspecified" threat, according to the superintendent's office. By 3 pm, school buses were authorized to take children home even though Superintendent of Schools had not formally lifted the modified lockdown order.
