After the tragic school shooting in Connecticut on Friday, a school in Michigan has closed its doors until 2013. Over the weekend, school officials in the Cass City school district learned of threats made by a student to "shoot up the school." This prompted the district to cancel all classes from Monday through Wednesday.

According to WNEM, Superintendent Jeff Hartel said…

Over the weekend the district learned that a student made threats about 'shooting up the school.'  In the interest of student safety, regularly scheduled classes from Monday through Wednesday are now canceled.  The holiday break starts early, and school will be back in session the first week of January.

Police have been notified and there will be a special meeting of the Board of Education to decide what actions to take against the student that made the threat.
