The shelter in place order at all Mahtomedi Public School buildings has been lifted and all students and staff are safe.
The district says the Washington County Sheriff's Office recommended the order on Thursday due to a social media threat.
The sheriff's office has since identified the source of the post as a juvenile and determined the threat was not credible, the district said Thursday afternoon. Once the all-clear was given, the district lifted the shelter-in-place order and normal operations have resumed.
"Our No. 1 concern is always the safety of our school community and we take threats seriously. Our schools are safe places for our students and we use safety and security measures every day to keep our students safe," the district said. "We are thankful for the strong partnership between Mahtomedi Public Schools and Washington County Sheriff’s Office."
It's unclear what the threat was or where the post was shared, and because the suspect is a juvenile, the district said it will not release any additional information.
