Thayer Central cancels school Wednesday as threat investigation continues
HEBRON, NE — Students and staff at a southeast Nebraska school district will continue to not go to school as authorities investigate a threat made against the district late last week.
Thayer Central Community Schools has announced on its social media they will not have classes Wednesday. It's the third-day in a row the district has called off school after reporting they received a threat Friday, Jan. 27. The school's administration maintains the decision was made out of an abundance of caution for students and staff.
An investigation into the matter is ongoing.
In addition to the cancellation, the junior high quiz bowl events Thayer Central was set to host Wednesday have been postponed.
The Titans girls basketball team was set to host a Southern Nebraska Conference tournament game Tuesday. Officials moved the game to Fillmore Central High School. Thayer Central ended up winning the game 37-30 over David City.
School officials notified local and state law enforcement of the threat shortly after learning about it on Friday. In a statement released Friday, the district said they will not answer questions while the investigation is ongoing, but will provide more information when it is available.
