MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Another school in Minnesota has been canceled due to a threat this week.

On Friday, St. Francis Area Schools says all school buildings are closed and staff have been directed to stay at home Friday.

The decision was made after an alleged threat was made by a secondary-level student in the school district. The threat was made by a student “potentially towards Crossroads School and Vocational Center”, according to city officials.

“All early childhood programs, community education classes and after-school and evening activities are canceled. Kids Connection and Just 4 Kids are closed as well,” the school district said.

Police said the 17-year-old student who made the threat was booked into the Lino Lakes Correctional Facility.

    This is PRECISELY what these sick little punks are looking for! Lock all doors (from the outside) except the main entrance and put either armed security agents or local police at that door while school is open. STOP giving the news seeking misfits what they want – which is your over reaction.
