BRODHEADSVILLE -- A high school in Monroe County was closed Monday due to a safety concern.
Students at Pleasant Valley High School never made it to class Monday. They were sent home for the day for what officials call safety reasons.
State police told us that it was a bomb threat that forced the shutdown of the school.
According to the district website, school officials received information early Monday of a possible threat at the high school that prompted a closure for safety concerns.
The superintendent says there is no threat to any other school and all schools are safe for students and staff.
Students who were on buses were brought to the district's middle school and then sent home. District officials also advised students who drive themselves not to come to school.
That building will remain closed for the rest of the day while the investigation continues.
