A Fairfield County school was asked to shelter-in-place after a student brought a suspicious package to school.
The incident took place early Tuesday, Dec. 7, at the Rogers International School on Blachley Road in Stamford.
According to Sg. William Brevard, of the Stamford Police, a student brought a suspicious package to the school.
Out of an abundance of caution, Stamford Police were notified and students and staff were asked to “shelter-in-place” until SPD declared the school safe.
Police responded to the school with K-9 dogs and searched the package, which was deemed "nothing," Brevard said.
"Students and staff are to be congratulated for remembering their practice drills and effectively using shelter-in-place," the school said.
