As of this morning, Thursday, November 1, New Britain High School has gone into lockdown mode.

According to Fox 61, New Britain Mayor, Erin Stewart explained that the high school was locked down as a safety measure due to a student overhearing another student that he had brought a weapon to school to protect himself.

The high school has since beefed up its police presence for the rest of this Thursday. There have been no direct threats to any of the students. New Britain Police will maintain their presence to provide reassurance for students, faculty, and parents
