There will be no school in Henniker, Weare, and John Stark School districts on 2/20/18.

The cooperative investigation into events reported last Friday is ongoing. Investigators from the Weare Police Department and the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force conducted multiple interviews throughout the day at JSRHS.
Conference calls were held throughout the day today among the Weare Police Department, Henniker Police Department and SAU24. This afternoon, walk-throughs were conducted at Weare Middle School, Center Woods Upper Elementary, Center Woods, and John Stark Regional High School.
In a separate issue, due to information that was received by the Weare Police Department after buses had begun to depart for dismissal, three buses (# 4, # 5, and # 8) that are normally routed through the high school were delayed temporarily. As a precautionary measure, while the tip was investigated, elementary and upper elementary students were brought into the Atrium at the high school. Once student safety on the buses was assured, students re-boarded and were sent on their way.
I am exercising an abundance of caution and cancelling school for tomorrow, Tuesday, February 20, 2018. We will provide information to you as it is released. We understand how concerned you all are and we share those concerns as well. Our students’ safety is paramount to everything we do.
