Apparently, it's not the bloody truth.

After stories spread that vampires were strolling the campus of Boston Latin School, the headmaster of the prestigious college-prep institution put a stake in the rumors.

Lynne Mooney Teta sent a notice out Thursday to faculty, students and parents denying the presence of bloodsuckers.

She declined, however, to offer details about the rumors.

Boston Police spokesman Eddy Chrispin said police were called to the school Wednesday after hearing of the vampire tales.

Chrispin said he didn't know if the alleged vampires were among the student body or hiding in old corners of the building.

The school was founded in 1635, and its students have included Ben Franklin, Sam Adams, Louis Farrakhan and Sumner Redstone.
