“Amity Regional High School is currently in a Shelter-in-Place status. This means the exterior of the school building is locked down and no one can enter the building. Students will only be dismissed to a parent/guardian who must present ID at the front security. Students will move within the building between classes and lunch. Local police are on site and continuing the investigation. At this time, students should not be exiting the building on their own. Thank you for your cooperation and support while we continue the investigation.”
In it she stated:
“Some Amity Regional High School staff and students received an email this morning that contained a threatening message. The Woodbridge Police Department responded immediately and are investigating. School staff are supporting the investigation. At this time, we believe students are safe and will continue to look into the matter. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.”
UPDATE: Parents are lining up to pick up their children after word went out on local TV News stations that the threatening e-mails contained images of guns.

Amity Regional School District will be hosting a COVID vaccine clinic at Amity Regional High School. This clinic will be open to all students and staff. Students ages 12 and up may participate in this clinic, as it is Pfizer vaccination clinic.
Amity Regional High School, District Presentation Room
8:00 am – 4:30 pm
First Dose – September 23, 2021
Second Dose – October 14, 2021
COVID vaccines are a mitigation strategy to make sure that our school community is protected from COVID and that our students and staff are able to have a smooth and uninterrupted school year.
Asymptomatic students who are vaccinated and identified as close contacts do not have to quarantine and can continue their in-person learning and in-person extracurricular and co-curricular activities.
We hope families who have not yet had their student vaccinated take this opportunity to access a COVID vaccine. For an overview of COVID vaccines for children, including information about the Pfizer vaccine product, click here.
To read an interview about COVID 19 vaccines with a Connecticut-based pediatrician who is also the President-Elect for the Connecticut chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, click here. In addition, we encourage families to consult with their pediatricians.
All students and staff who want to get vaccinated at Amity’s clinic on September 23rd and October 14th are welcome to do so. This is a walk-in clinic for students and staff – no appointment is necessary.
- Students ages 12-17 do NOT need a parent/guardian present, but must present a fully completed and signed consent form prior to receiving a vaccination.
- Parents/guardians can attend the appointment with a 12-17 year old student and complete the consent form at that time.
- Students ages 18 and older can complete their own consent form.
Thank you for everything you are doing to keep yourselves, your students, and your community safe. Sincerely,
Amity Superintendent Jenn Byars
