GROVE CITY, Pa. (WKBN) – Online gaming threats caused Grove City Middle School to have a remote learning day on Thursday.

According to Grove City Area School District Superintendent Dr. Jeffrey Finch, late Wednesday night, the district received information related to middle school students communicating threatening comments through a social media gaming site.

Finch said that safety is the district’s main priority, and out of an abundance of caution, Grove City Middle School would operate through remote instruction on Thursday while the administration continues to work with police to thoroughly investigate the issue.

In a release sent Thursday afternoon, Finch said the investigation has led them to identify those involved, which will require further interventions.

Classes will resume in person on Friday.

The change did not impact students at Hillview Elementary or Grove City High School.

Students can reach out to their school counselor or building administrators if they have any questions or concerns.
