Platteville School District closing schools Friday due to ‘threat of violence’


PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — The Platteville School District has closed schools Friday due to a threat.

According to a representative from the school district, schools were closed due to a “threat of violence.”

In a Facebook post later in the morning, school officials said they were notified of a potential threat of violence and decided to cancel classes out of an abundance of caution.

School officials said they were investigating the threat.

It’s unclear if the decision is related to a nationwide threat circulating on the social media app, TikTok.
