Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff Releases Statement Following Arrest of Juvenile Who Allegedly Made Threats to Norwalk High School

This morning, Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) is releasing a statement following the arrest made of a juvenile who allegedly made threats to Norwalk High School.
“Yesterday’s arrest will hopefully be the first step in healing for a nervous and stressed school community. The last eight days have been extremely difficult for students, parents, faculty and staff. That’s in addition to the conditions already caused by a pandemic and other issues we all face on a daily basis.

Everyone inside the Norwalk High School building should be very proud of how they conducted themselves during the multiple challenges. Students felt safe and were safe because of the way teachers and staff carried themselves and rose to the challenge often times treating them like their own children.

I want to thank Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling, Superintendent Alexandra Estrella and her team, our law enforcement partners including the Norwalk Police for their diligent efforts and the governor’s office for their counsel.

I hope this ends a tumultuous chapter for everyone at Norwalk High and those who were impacted at Naramake Elementary School and Nathan Hale Middle School as well. Let’s get back to school and full time learning.”
