SPRING CHURCH (KDKA) — Schools in the Apollo-Ridge School District will be closed Monday due to a school threat.

The district said on their website that on Sunday afternoon, they learned of a “threatening statement” that was sent to a student on social media over the weekend.

Kiski Township Police say the original threat, which was sent on Instagram, only named “Apollo” and did not directly threaten a specific school.

The district says Monday’s classes have been canceled as a precaution.

Law enforcement officials are investigating.

Blackhawk School District in Beaver Falls also canceled classes on Monday due to statements made on social media.

It is unclear if the two threats are one in the same or unrelated.
