The Blue Ridge School District issued a statement on its website explaining that the entire district is closed on Friday, October 4, 2019, so that officials can investigate threats made against the school.

According to the Blue Ridge School District website,

The Blue Ridge School District will be closed tomorrow, Friday October 4. Since the message earlier this evening that school will be in session tomorrow, school officials have received additional anonymous tips that need to be investigated and are unable to investigate all reports prior to school opening tomorrow. The District understands that threats on a school can bring fear for our students and the district wants to make sure that when students return to school on Monday, October 7 that they are returning to a safe and secure school environment. The safety of our students is our number 1 priority. Again, school will be closed tomorrow, October 4. Thank you.”
