BEMIDJI - Cass Lake schools were closed Friday due to rumors of potential violence circulating social media.

The school district's superintendent Anita Grace said school leadership made the decision Thursday afternoon. After-school activities were canceled Thursday and Friday as well.


"We just weren't prepared to have every school building be identical with their safety and security measures due to an investigation in a neighboring community," Grace said.
