A threatening e-mail caused Lac qui Parle Valley High School in Madison, Minnesota to close down today, Principal Jon Fulton said.
The e-mail included talk of a student threatening to harm other students or staff, similar to a threat made on a Minneapolis school last week, according to the West Central Tribune of nearby Willmar, Minnesota.
The e-mail named a local student, but investigation showed that he was not actually involved. Internet Service Providers said the e-mail appeared to have originated from outside the U.S., according to the Associated Press.
Fulton said that school will proceed as normal starting Monday.
