Greenwich middle school teacher Stacey Goodnow, 46, was accused of leaving a voice mail message to another teacher that she would “shoot up” her school because she was upset over a personnel situation, according to Norwalk police.
Goodnow, who lives on Melrose Avenue in Norwalk and is a sixth-grade teacher at Western Middle School in Greenwich, was arrested Friday and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and was initially held on $100,000 bond.
According to Norwalk Police Lt. Thomas Mattera, Goodnow’s bond was lowered at Norwalk Superior Court on Monday to $5,000. She posted bond and was released.
Police said Goodnow left the voice mail earlier in the month, which prompted a report to Greenwich police. The Greenwich Police Department contacted the Norwalk Police Department because the call was placed from the suspect’s home, according to Mattera. The lieutenant declined to elaborate, but Goodnow is believed to have made more than one threatening call.
“Her alleged statements were annoying and alarming on several levels,” said Mattera.
The court put conditions on her release, such as staying away from the school district and school personnel.
