UPDATE: District officials announced late Tuesday that schools would remain closed Wednesday as they continue to investigate the threat.
A threat that is currently under investigation by law enforcement personnel closed the Saucon Valley School District campus Tuesday night.
In a post on the district’s Facebook page, superintendent Jaime Vlasaty said all schools were closed and all games, practices, meetings and activities were canceled Tuesday evening due to a threat that was “called in to the district.”
The closure took effect at 6:15 p.m., she said, adding that adults on campus would ensure that students who were on campus at the time remained safe until they were picked up at their location.
“Local law enforcement has been notified and the threat is currently being investigated,” Vlasaty wrote. “The District will continue to assess this situation and an update will be provided this evening.”
As of 7:45 p.m., it was still unclear if schools would open on time on Wednesday.
The announcement did not identify the nature of the threat.
On Tuesday, Saucon Source reported about an ‘After School Satan Club’ that was recently approved to meet at Saucon Valley Middle School.
Some parents have expressed anger about the club, which is not sponsored by the district and which Vlasaty said it is obligated to host.
Uh, not sure the superintendent understands who Satan is! Otherwise, she wouldn’t subject innocent children to a Satan Club. He is the father of all lies, Prince of Darkness who wants to take souls with him to hell for eternity. She compared this club to other religions…..uh, no, Satanism is anti-religion, can’t be compared to other religions. The Club sugarcoats who they are and what they do….all lies!
