A Triton Public Schools student has been arrested of a threat made on social media on Saturday.

The juvenile allegedly posted a warning for other Triton students not to go to school on Monday.

This was reported by one of his classmates to the police, who then arrested him and placed him in a juvenile holding facility in Rochester.

He will make his first court appearance on Monday.

The Dodge County Sheriff's Office says there is no threat to student safety at this time.

"We take every threat like this seriously and applaud those involved in reporting these threats," it said in a statement.

"This incident serves as an important reminder for parents to talk to their kids about the seriousness of making threats like this."

It is the second time a student of Triton schools has been arrested for making a threat since the mass shooting at a school in Parkland, Florida on Feb. 14.

Saturday's incident is virtually identical to the one in March, when a student posted on Snapchat that students "better not come to school on Friday."
