Bluffs School District was the center of an investigation regarding a possible threat made against the school this morning.

According to a press release, several law enforcement agencies from Bluffs, Scott County Sheriff’s Department and the Illinois State Police were on campus. The incident investigation began just after 9 a-m and concluded before 11:00.

The threat was not deemed credible after a thorough investigation. Officials say students, faculty and staff at the schools were not in any danger during the investigation, and the school was never placed on a “lockdown”.
