This morning, at approximately 8:45 am, the Amity Regional High School administration received a report of an alleged incident in the community. The initial report indicated a residential burglary. Due to the proximity of the alleged incident, Amity Regional High School sheltered in place by bringing in PE classes, double checking to ensure all doors were locked, and restricting hall passes for students. At 9:35 am, we received an “all clear” from the Woodbridge Police Department. The school returned to normal operations.
