ALPENA, Mich. — The Alpena School District cancelled classes at the high school on Friday.
Police told school officials they received word of a threat made against the building late Thursday night. Parents received a notice shortly afterwards that high school students would remain home for their safety. The cancellation also affected ACES academy and CTE classes.
After almost a full day of investigation, police found no actual threat to the school. Officials say it turned out the threat warning came from a misinformed party, based on rumors from local social media.
Superintendent David Rabbideau said classes will resume on Monday.
