ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) - Attleboro school officials are investigating the discovery of what’s being described as a “hit list” written by an elementary school student.

Superintendent Kenneth Sheehan said he’ll meet with school staff, police and other officials to investigate a note containing the names of students that was found at Hill-Roberts Elementary School.

Sheehan tells The Sun Chronicle (https://bit.ly/1ctBmLU) a substitute teacher got the note written by a disabled student a week ago and gave it to a school counselor. Sheehan, who had been on vacation, said he wasn’t told about it until Monday because the staffers didn’t think the child intended to act on it.

Sheehan said he believes the students are safe, but he’s taking the note seriously.

Police Chief Kyle Heagney said the student isn’t attending school temporarily until a risk assessment is completed.
