Schools across Oakland, Wayne counties close after online threats made

Schools across the Hometown Life communities are closed Thursday, Dec. 2, due to online threats.

Additionally, Huron Valley and Novi officials announced both these districts will also be closed Friday, Dec. 3. Farmington Public Schools and South Lyon Community Schools announced all buildings are closed through Monday, Dec. 6.

In a video on the district’s Facebook page, Superintendent Paul Salah said Huron Valley became aware of unspecified online threats Wednesday night and were advised to close Lakeland High School by the White Lake Police Department. Additional threats were received regarding middle schools and the decision was made to close all schools.

“After meeting with local law enforcement agencies this morning, I felt it was prudent to allow them to the time they need to implement their tools, skills, their strategies and their resources to track down and hold accountable any individual that is haphazardly creating fear and chaos,” he said Thursday afternoon.
