BOSTON, March 26 (UPI) -- The headmaster of a Boston private school says contrary to rumors her prestigious institution is not home to so-called vampires.
Boston Latin School administrator Lynne Mooney Teta said in a notice Thursday that despite recent rumors of so-called vampires being present at her school, Boston Latin is free of any of the fictional blood-sucking undead, The Boston Globe said.
"I seek your cooperation in redirecting your energy toward the learning objectives of day. Please do not sensationalize or discuss these rumors," Teta said in a notice to staff members, along with students and their parents.
Specific details of the vampire rumors were not reported.
Officer Eddy Chrispin of the Boston Police confirmed officers were sent to the school Wednesday to investigate reports of vampires.
"I'm not sure whether (the supposed vampires) were among the student body or whether they were inhabiting the old corners and crevices of the building," he told the Globe.
