ELKO, Nev. (AP) — Classes resumed at a high school in northeast Nevada a day after an anonymous threat prompted its closure.

Elko County school officials canceled classes Wednesday at Elko High School after the unspecified threat was received the night before.

The Elko Daily Free Press reported Thursday that local police determined the threat was not credible but that an investigation into the incident was continuing.

School Superintendent Jeff Zander said police were still interviewing some students and reviewing their cellphones.

He says the district purposefully erred on the side of safety by canceling classes on Wednesday because there wasn’t enough time to determine whether there was any potential danger.
