Southern Nebraska schools shut down second day after receiving threat

Thayer Central Community Schools will remain closed for a second day Tuesday not because of winter weather but because of an unknown threat to student safety.

In a letter sent to parents Monday morning, top administration officials said they would continue to work with Thayer County law enforcement to investigate a threat made against the school on Friday.

Later Monday, a tweet from the district said the school would remain closed on Tuesday.

No information was released as to the nature of the threat, and the Thayer County Sheriff’s Office declined to comment.

The letter was signed by Superintendent Randy Page, high school and middle school principal Tom Kiburz, and elementary school principal Eric Hoops.

A press release on Saturday indicated the school would increase police presence on campus Monday, but classes were later canceled.
