The parent of a Southington Middle School student posted an anonymous comment online over the weekend warning students they would be "in for a surprise come Monday," and someone else followed up with a second message urging students to stay home, according to police.
Police said the mother posted the warning on the anonymous website ask.fm after reading comments posted to her child's page. She told investigators she intended only to bring attention to some of the things students were writing and had plans to report the comments to school officials.
Another person, who has not been identified, responded to the mom's post by writing, "Don't go to School Monday," according to police. It's not clear if that person knew anything about the mother or her motive.
Police said they notified the Southington Board of Education of their investigation.
