Police investigating threat against Vermont student

MILTON, Vt. (WCAX) Police are investigating a threat made against a student at Milton High School.

Investigators say the threat was made on social media by a student from another district.

The Milton Town Schools Superintendent Amy Rex says the school was notified by police at about 1:30 p.m.

Police would not say what the threat entailed but they say it was directed toward the student and not the school.

After-school programs at the high school were canceled Thursday. Rex does not believe classes will be canceled Friday.

The district has requested an additional student resource officer at the high school for Friday.
