GRAND RAPIDS - The superintendent of the Grand Rapids School District says schools are running as usual after a suicide threat temporarily limited access to schools Friday morning.
On the district's website, Superintendent Joe Silko said he received a call from the Itasca County Sheriff's Department that an adult male called the crisis center and threatened suicidal action.
When the cell phone was traced, it pinged in the area of Robert J. Elkington Middle School and later pinged Southwest Elementary School.
For a time, the district restricted the drop off and delivery of students while officials made sure the schools were safe.
Silko said that at no time was the suicidal individual in any of the school buildings, and that students were not in danger.
