ROCKLAND — Oceanside High School was the target of a hoax call about an active shooter.

Regional School Unit 13 Superintendent John McDonald said the call was false and Rockland Police have verified that the call was a hoax.

“We are following all of our safety protocols but there is no danger to students at this time and we are experiencing normal operations,” McDonald said.

The call to the Knox County Regional Communications Center about the high school in Rockland came in at about 10 a.m. Nov. 15. The call was a hoax.

This followed a series of calls to police across the state, claiming there were active shooters at schools.

The Maine Department of Public Safety issued a statement Tuesday morning prior to the call being received about Oceanside.

“The Department of Public Safety is aware of multiple active shooter threats that have been made at schools throughout the state. Maine State Police have been assisting local law enforcement agencies with these initial investigations.

“At this time these reports are believed to be a hoax. The Maine Information Analysis Center (MIAC) is heavily involved in coordinating these investigations,” the statement concluded.
