NEW BEDFORD: — Superintendent of New Bedford Public Schools Thomas Anderson has issued a statement regarding the threats made to schools Wednesday morning.

Anderson says NBPS is aware of the threats and is working closely with New Bedford Police, which has determined the threat to not be credible. Police also report that New Bedford is not the only city to receive the threats.

"We are working aggressively with NBPD regarding a non-credible threat made against public schools in general.  At this time we are remaining in session, and as a precaution we will be on high alert.  As normal, we are supporting our schools through this process," Anderson said.

On Wednesday morning, Global Learning Charter Public School received an email threatening to shoot students and staff.

Global Learning informed WBSM News that is has canceled school for the day.

New Bedford Police are investigating.
