Maine Schools Shut Down for 2nd Day After Threat

WINDHAM, Maine - Police in a Maine town say there will be no school in a local school district for a second day in the wake of an evacuation prompted by an emailed threat.

WGME-TV reports there will be no school in Regional School Unit 14 on Tuesday. The district serves about 3,300 students Windham and Raymond. The district released all of its students on Monday as police investigated the emailed threat.

Windham Police Lt. Jim Boudreau said Monday that his department enlisted the Maine Computer Crimes Task Force in an investigation to attempt to determine the source of the emails. There were two different emails that came from different sources.

Police have said no details will be released until the investigation is concluded.
