    Good Morning, Due to a situation at Weymouth High School this morning involving an unsubstantiated threat, out of an abundance of caution, we are going to delay the opening of Weymouth High School by 3 hours.  This delay will give the Weymouth Police additional time to investigate thoroughly.  Student and staff safety is of the upmost [sic] importance to us, so it is with this in mind that we believe it is best to delay the start of school today.  School will begin at 10:30.  All bus routes will be delayed three hours from normal time.  Again, this is out of an abundance of caution, and we are working with Weymouth Police. If there is further information we will update you, otherwise, school will begin at 10:30 AM.
