After an “inappropriate comment” was made at Stratford schools, students were given the option to take part in a nationwide walkout indoors, according to the superintendent.
The student who made the comment was not at school Wednesday, Superintendent Scott Winch told Newsline 9. School officials did not say if the student would be returning Thursday.
The student does not have a history of school discipline, according to school officials.
“At no time where there any threats made by the student,” Stratford Police Chief Tim Miller said on Facebook.
The school allowed students who wanted to take part in a walkout to do so, according to Winch. The school also offered a space for students who wanted to participate indoors.
Some parents chose to keep their kids home from school Wednesday.
Students also stayed inside at D.C. Everest schools Wednesday after word of what school officials said was an "unsubstantiated" threat.
