UPDATE: Lakeville Area Schools officials say a threat that prompted students to shift to distance learning Friday was not credible.
While activities are canceled Friday evening, they will resume as normal on Saturday. School will resume as normal on Monday.
“As always student safety and well-being are our top priorities. We take all threats seriously and as with any ongoing investigation limited information can be shared. However, we are now able to confirm that a bomb threat was made overnight to Lakeville South High School and other unnamed schools in the Lakeville Area School district,” the statement said.

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — All Lakeville Area Schools are closed Friday as officials say an active threat is under investigation by police.
In an alert on its website, the south metro district says that all K-12 students will shift to distance learning Friday and all staff will work remotely. The district’s office is also closed.
Students already on site for early childhood programs should be picked up immediately, the district advised parents.
No word was given as to the nature of the threat. Lakeville police said it was communicated to the school district, not the broader community.
