The sudden appearance of six NJ State Police vehicles were at this afternoon set tongues wagging Thursday.
The reason, though, had nothing to do with for which the NJ Dept. of Education is investigating the high school.
State police were at Woodbridge High to give a training seminar for on how to handle a school shooter situation.
Signs on the doors to the administrative end of the building said that the third floor was closed for the day, in preparation for the training.
That floor was the 'staging area' for the training.
"It was a training exercise, for how to handle an 'active shooter' situation," said NJ State Police spokesman Sgt. Brian Polite. "We do them pretty often at different schools across the state."
Two Edison patrol cars were also in the parking lot. An Edison police official said that two officers had to been sent to observe the training exercise.
"It's all part of the training, how to enter a school where there is an active shooter," Polite said.
