Juvenile arrested after threatening incident prompts police presence at Seymour Middle School

March 19, 2019

SEYMOUR — A juvenile was arrested and charged in connection with an incident that prompted an increased police presence at Seymour Middle School, according to district officials.

After a recent “See Something, Say Something presentation,” town students “reported concerning information obtained over the weekend while out of school to their counselors when they arrived” Monday, Superintendent Michael Wilson and Assistant Superintendent Vonda Tencza said in a letter to the school community Tuesday.

“At no time were any of our students in danger, however, the police were needed to investigate the information that was shared,” said Wilson and Tencza in the letter.

A juvenile was arrested, charged with first-degree threatening and second-degree breach of peace, and scheduled to appear in Juvenile Court in Waterbury Tuesday in connection with the incident, according to the letter.

“School safety is always our number one priority and we will continue to work collaboratively with the Police Department to ensure that our students are safe,” Wilson and Tencza said in the letter.
