To the Shawsheen Valley Technical High School Community,

Yesterday, we sent out information to inform you of potential threats to school safety and to let you know that in coordination with the Billerica Police Department, no credible threat was identified. We have been in touch with Lieutenant Roche of the Billerica Police Department, he has investigated all reports and assures us that there is no viable threat. We will continue to work with the Billerica Police Department to take all precautions.

As always, we recognize that even when threats are not credible, they still can cause significant stress for our students due to the realities of the world we live in. We strive to provide a safe and supportive learning environment at Shawsheen and we take the mental health and wellness of our students very seriously. We want to remind students that they can seek out support from the Guidance Department at any time if they need to.
