Online Threats Force School Closures in Metamora

Oct 3, 2017

Several schools in the Metamora area have canceled classes Tues., due to what police are calling a “credible threat.” The following schools are closed:

  • Metamora Township High School

  • Metamora Grade School

  • Riverview Grade School

  • Germantown Hills Grade School

  • St. Mary's School Metamora

The closures come two days after a racist video was posted by a Metamora Township High School Student directed at a black classmate. School officials are expected to make a public statement today.

The school district says in a statement posted early Tues. that it’s working with multiple law enforcement agencies to address the matter.  As a result, classes and extracurricular activities are canceled.
