Officials: Vineland Public Schools closes for day ‘out of an abundance of caution’ following threats

Vineland Public Schools closed Thursday "out of an abundance of caution," with district officials saying there were threats circulating on social media about the high school.
The district posted on Facebook around 10 p.m. to say all buildings would be closed with students and staff staying home.
The school district says a social media threat circulating about a possible school shooting prompted the district's decision to close for the day.
The district said in a statement, "The district was informed of a threat circulating on social media regarding a possible school shooting. The Vineland Police Department is investigating. We follow all VPD recommendations to ensure a safe and secure environment for all students, staff, and visitors and take all threats seriously. Decisions regarding Friday's classes will be made and shared later today."
“Terrified, she was scared,” says parent Jorge Quiles. “We don’t need none of that in Vineland. This is the first time we’ve had a threat like this. “They did a good job of closing just in case there was any threat. Yes, they did a good job closing.”
The district says there was no virtual instruction for the day. The closure includes its private provider’s preschools.
News 12 reached out to the district and police for more information.
It’s unclear whether there is school Friday. The district says it will make a decision later today.
