WOODBURY – On the sixth anniversary of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, there were no credible threats made against and of the Region 14 schools, according to Superintendent of Schools 
Dr. Joseph A. Olzacki.

In an email sent to Region 14 parents, Olzacki wrote that there were rumors stemming from social media and added that there was, at no time, any substantiated threat to the schools. 

“I am pleased to share that the day went well for the Region and was uneventful,” Olzacki wrote.

There was, however, a substantiated threat made at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and students there were sent home. 

Dawn Hochsprung, the Sandy Hook Elementary School principal who was one of 26 faculty and students killed in the shooting, was a Woodbury resident. Before she became principal of Sandy Hook, Hochsprung was principal at Region 14’s Bethlehem Elementary School and Mitchell Elementary School.
