Here's what made news this week. 

Greenwich High School was sent into a lockdown Thursday, after a gun scare.  Greenwich police say students reported that 19 year old Gianfranco Romero had a gun in his backpack, and planned on shooting people in another state.  After the school's administration and police responded, they say no one was hurt and no weapon was found.  

Police say Romero is charged with Breach of Peace.  Greenwich Superintendent William McKersie says school counselors are available for students who may need support. 

In Norwalk, the City is continuing to make its traffic signals more tech savvy.  The Common Council approved a $315,000 contract Tuesday to design phase three of the city's ongoing traffic signal update. 

Alvord says the city will receive $3 million in federal grants to install new technology at about a dozen locations.  The work on the third phase is expected to begin in 2014.

In Stamford, Rogers International School named two areas of its building in memory of two cherished teachers.  Patrice Pollard and Leslie Padilla both passed away from cancer last March.  The school and community honored the beloved educators with a dedication ceremony Tuesday.
