Students were evacuated from Crosby-Ironton High School on Monday afternoon after a threat was made against the school.
Crosby-Ironton Superintendent Jamie Skjeveland said he didn't know the nature of the threat made against the school but did say it was made from a Crosby gas station phone to the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Department.
At noon, students were sent home for the day, Skjeveland said.
"What we did was evacuate the high school immediately to neighboring buildings and had buses pick up students at those buildings," Skjeveland said.
The school district sent out a brief news release stating that due to a threat made against the school district, students were dismissed as a precaution from Cuyuna Range Elementary School at 1:15 p.m. and the high school at 1:30 p.m.
Crow Wing County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Debi Backdahl said members of the sheriff's tactical team and bomb squad responded to the high school to assist Crosby police officers.
Officers searched the building but found nothing out of the ordinary, Skjeveland said. Classes in the district will resume Tuesday, he added.
