The response by West Hartford’s police and fire departments, and AMR ambulance, to Bristow Middle School mid-day Wednesday was due to a medical situation, officials said.
West Hartford Police Capt. Eric Rocheleau said there was “no risk to students.”
“I can confirm we responded to a medical call and transported a patient to the hospital,” West Hartford Fire Chief Greg Priest said.
Bristow Principal Chad Ellis informed families Wednesday afternoon that the medical emergency “necessitated students remaining in their classrooms for an extended period while first responders offered aid,” and he thanked students and staff for their cooperation and sensitivity regarding the situation.
No information about who the patient was, or their medical condition, is available.
Bristow students were dismissed at 1:30 p.m., according to the regular Wednesday dismissal schedule.
