Glenbard West High School classes will be in session Friday after a threat investigation found no danger to students or staff, school officials said.

District 87 officials and Glen Ellyn police began an investigation Thursday into allegations that a student threatened violence toward other students through social media, officials said in a news release.


No arrests have been made, but officials continue to investigate. A strong police presence is expected Friday while class is in session.

"The Glen Ellyn Police and staff at Glenbard West will remain steadfast in investigating allegations like these to ensure the safety of the Glenbard West community," Glen Ellyn Police Chief Philip Norton said. "Thank you to the individuals who had the awareness to come forward and report this situation."
