“Potential Threat” Forces Mahanoy Area Schools to Go Virtual

Officials at Mahanoy Area School District announced all schools will be conducted virtually on Tuesday after they received a “potential threat”.

The school posted on its Facebook page late Monday night that it will “err on the side of caution” in going with virtual classes Tuesday.

They say it’ll allow time for an investigation and that it’ll release more information about the threat when the inquest is concluded.

The district is asking any student with knowledge of the “potential threat” to notify their school on Tuesday.

Mahanoy Area’s scrape with some sort of “threat” continues a trend locally in Schuylkill County schools.

A few weeks ago, students at Pottsville Area School District were placed on a temporary lockdown due to a threat being found inside the school.

And just last week, a student was removed from Blue Mountain School District after he allegedly posted threatening messages on Snapchat. Blue Mountain officials stated publicly that county officials seized guns from the student’s home during the course of an investigation.
