Ewing, NJ public schools closed by ‘unconfirmed threat’
EWING — All Ewing public schools were closed Tuesday due to an unconfirmed school threat.
In an announcement posted on the district social media platforms and website just before 7 a.m. the district said that out of "an abundance of caution" the schools would be closed.
Ewing police are bringing additional officers and equipment from other agencies to all public and private schools as well.
The nature of the threat and how it was received was not disclosed by police. The department asked parents not to call looking for additional information.
The threat comes the morning after three students were killed and five wounded after a gunman opened fire at Michigan State University in East Lansing. The gunman took his own life, according to police.
It is also the fifth anniversary of the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. 17 were killed and another 17 injured in the attack.
