An online threat has forced the closure of a Maine high school for tomorrow.

According to WMTW, Bonny-Eagle High School in Standish will be closed on Thursday (September 30th) due to concerns about a threat made on the social media platform Snapchat.

Apparently, the threat did not specifically cite the high school as the target of the threat, but because images of the threat were shared on Snapchat by Bonny-Eagle students, administrators made the decision to close out of an abundance of caution.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office is now investigating the validity of the threat.

The school, which has an enrollment of about 1,000 students, serves the towns of Buxton, Standish, Hollis, Limington, and several other small towns.
