BAYONNE, NJ - An "out of context" statement made about the Bayonne High School lockdown and its connection to last week's school shooting in Parkland, Florida led to an investigation at Henry E. Harris Community School on Friday afternoon.

According to a letter sent to all Bayonne public school families on Saturday, Interim Superintendent Dr. Michael Wanko said Bayonne Police were called to Henry Harris at 3:30 p.m. on Friday after a concerned parent contacted school principal Maria Kazimir. The parent told Kazimir that her child reported "a fellow student was stating that there was going to be a shooting at Henry E. Harris School on this upcoming Monday."

Bayonne Police investigated the claim and it was determined "this too was a non-credible threat," the letter said. Officers determined the undisclosed student's comment was taken out of context during a conversation about the high school lockdown and the Parkland, Florida shooting.

Despite the "non-credible" threat, Wanko, along with Assistant Superintendent Kenneth Kopacz, the district chair of the Safety Team, will be at HEH School on Monday morning.

The "Bayonne Alerts" Facebook page was the first to report the letter.
