Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) officials announced Northeast Middle School would move to distance learning Wednesday.

Officials announced the move to distance learning following a "possible threat" made to the school.

MPS issued the following statement Wednesday regarding the incident:

In the middle of the night, MPS received information about a possible threat to Northeast Middle School. While we do not believe the threat is credible, we are moving the school to distance learning today in an effort to ensure the safety of the school community and give us the time to further investigate. 

Again, our investigation shows no credible threat to the school, but given the environment we are now in, we are taking every precaution.
