HCC Open After Threat Shutdown

(Holyoke, MA) — Things are back to normal at Holyoke Community College after yesterday’s shutdown. Monday the school was closed after a janitor found a threatening note at the Kittredge Center. The note which threatened to harm people was turned over to state police. It’s the second time this year the campus has been closed for safety reasons. In February, HCC was evacuated after threats were made against members of the campus community.
