A school district in Pulaski County has canceled the final two days of summer school after it sent students home early Wednesday because of a threat, according to posts on a district Facebook page.

An hour later, the district said it would send summer school students home at 11 a.m. Police would remain at the scene "out of an abundance of caution," the district wrote.

All open gyms on campus scheduled for Wednesday night were canceled, the district said.
In a release, officials say the Croker police and the Pulaski County Sheriff's Department continue to investigate the threat.
