Teen in threats case won't be at Danvers school

DANVERS — A teenager charged with making threats to shoot a classmate and administrators at Essex Agricultural and Technical High School is no longer enrolled at a private Danvers school where his attorney said he was registered before his arrest.

Tyler Huntress, 17, of Boxford, was released from custody on Tuesday afternoon, following a hearing to determine whether he poses a danger if released while awaiting trial on a charge of making a threat against a school.

During that hearing, Huntress’s attorney, Jeff Sweeney, told Salem District Court Judge Matthew Nestor that Huntress’s parents had enrolled him at The Clark School, a private school in Danvers.

Nestor, who ordered Huntress to wear a GPS bracelet, had ordered that he remain confined to his home except to attend classes.

Yesterday, after The Salem News reported the story, David Thomson, a spokesman for The Clark School, issued a statement saying Huntress is “not currently enrolled” at the school, and that the school has been told Huntress is being home-schooled.
