Cheshire High School Principal Jeff Solan insisted that Tuesday was treated like a "normal" school day by everyone who arrived. There were just less in attendance than normal.
The threat scribbled on the wall of one of the boy's bathrooms at the school, which stated that "people will die" on Oct. 2, according to the "Mayans," proved to be nothing as the school day passed without incident. The threat was first found by faculty on Monday and rumors began to circulate across social media about the message. In response, Solan sent an email to parents explaining exactly what the threat had said and what the school planned to do about it.
To calm any nerves and make students and faculty feel safe, extra police officers were assigned to the school for Tuesday.
However, that didn't stop some from staying home. According to Solan, the school usually has about three percent absences during any normal day. On Tuesday, that percentage shot up to nearly 15 percent.
