At approximately 1:30 this afternoon, I was informed by police that they had received an anonymous threat to Archbishop Curley. From there, school administration worked with the Archdiocese, Baltimore County and City Police. All appropriate precautions were taken to ensure the safety of the Curley family. 

At this moment, authorities do not view this threat to be credible and there is no reason for anyone to change plans for tomorrow or the coming week. Please know that there will be police present on campus tomorrow morning. The decision to have them present is merely protocol. While no further information can be shared, we felt it was important to let everyone know that we were aware of a threat and took all necessary steps to ensure the safety and security of our community.
