From Superintendent Jordan:
At approximately 9:45 AM this morning local authorities informed us that a bomb threat had been received specifically naming the Ridge View Community School. All students and staff were safely evacuated to Dexter Regional High School where parents were reunified with their children. A State Police canine bomb-sniffing unit performed an extensive search of the school and found nothing suspicious. The school will be in session tomorrow with an added Police presence. Thank you to all of the staff, students, and the Dexter Police Department for handling a very stressful situation in a calm professional manner.
Members of the Maine Army National Guard will be coming to Ellms Field in Dexter to showcase portable equipment that they use in the field. Students from area schools and Tech Centers will be in attendance during the school day. The public is invited to come see the equipment in the afternoon.
