BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Boston Police are investigating threatening messages made to two high schools in the city.
Madison Park High School and Boston English High School were placed in "safe mode" while classes continued, but nobody was allowed in or out.
Around 2:30 p.m., the "safe mode" was lifted.
Police have not yet determined if the threats are credible, or said exactly how they were received.
A statement sent to English High parents informed them of the threat and the actions the school has taken, and said there would be an additional police presence on the premises through Thursday.
"Anyone who is found to have made threats against our school is subject to consequences from law enforcement and the BPS Code of Conduct," the statement read. "We take all safety issues very seriously."
Similar statements were sent to parents of Madison Park students, as well as parents of students at the adjacent John D. O'Bryant School.
