Police, Fire Investigating 'Low-Level Credibility Threat' at Wayland Middle

After-school activities have been canceled.

UPDATE, 2:15 P.M.

All after-school activities at have been canceled as police and fire officials sweep the building following a "low level credibility threat at approximately 1:08 p.m.," according to a note from Wayland Superintendent Paul Stein and WMS Principal Betsy Gavron.

"A caller reported that he believed there to be a bomb in the school," the note continues.

Students were scheduled for a 1:10 p.m. release Wednesday, and exited as per usual. The building was subsequently evacuated as a precaution.

Wayland Police and Wayland Fire were on the scene as staff "went through the building to make sure there is nothing unusual in sight."

State police bomb-sniffing dogs will also sweep the school this afternoon, therefore making it necessary to cancel all after-school activities, including BASE.


A "low-level, non-specific" bomb threat was called into Wayland Middle School this afternoon, according to Wayland Police Lt. Patrick Swanick.

Students were released at a regular Wednesday early dismissal time. The building has since been evacuated, so police could do a sweep.

Wayland Patch is on the scene and will update with additional information as it becomes available.
