Authorities investigate bomb threats at Newton high schools

NEWTON, Mass. (WHDH) — Officials in Newton say bomb threats at two high schools in the city are under investigation.

Emergency crews responded Friday morning to Newton North High School and Newton South High School after email threats about an explosive device were received.

Police say crews swept both schools and that no suspicious items were found. Both schools have since been cleared.

Students were present at both schools as summer classes and sporting activities were in session.
