Classes are continuing but students aren't allowed to exit until an all-clear is given by authorities.
Details of the threat weren't immediately known.
The school district mentioned recent similar threats that have been made that turned out to be a hoax, to which they state "this threat follows a similar pattern."
This is a developing story.
