Add St. Francis School District to the growing list of Minnesota schools taking precautionary measures after threats against students and staff have been made.

St. Francis schools are closed Friday while St. Francis police investigate threats made by a secondary-level student. 

The announcement went out to the district website at 5:19 a.m. Friday. All ensuing updates will be made here.

Last Friday, St. Francis High School also had an increased police presence after a student made a threat, which police deemed non-credible.
