Cony High School, Augusta ME
The Augusta Police Department has received several calls over the past hour in regards to a threat that happened on April 5th in Clovis New Mexico. Because Clovis High School and Cony High School are both abbreviated (CHS), several students from Cony High/Middle School and their parents have interpreted this as possible threat to our school in Augusta. Our investigation has revealed this online threat is the same one that originated in Clovis New Mexico on April 5th and is not a new threat made to Cony High School in Augusta. Several Police Departments and School Districts around the country that share the abbreviations (CHS) have fielded similar calls of concern by community members only to learn it is the same threat from Clovis New Mexico on April 5th. I have shared the link to the Clovis Police Department press release below:

It was confirmed that the student in question was not in school at the time the information surfaced and has not returned to school. The safety of all building users was never in question.
