The Hooksett Police Department is continuing to work closely with the staff at the Cawley Middle School and the SAU15 to determine the best actions to keep all students and staff safe.


More information and an updated press release will be sent out as soon as the status changes. Our goal is to keep parents and residents as informed as possible. We ask that you be patient with us while we continue the investigation.
