State and local police were called out to East Hampton Middle School on Saturday morning after a custodian opening the school to get it ready for a basketball game found a package on the front steps of the building.
The custodian called local police who called in the state police bomb squad to check out the package. State police deemed it unsuspicious but as a safegaurd, officials checked all other schools and public buildings in towns, said Mark Laraia, chairman of the town's Board of Education.
He said he hasn't learned yet what was in the package or why it was left at the Route 66 school.
Interim School Superintendent Mark Winzler sent out a reverse 911 call to parents Saturday afternoon to alert them to the situation and to assure them that there was no danger to students.
