WYOMING, Mich. — Police say a written threat on a bathroom wall prompted the closure of Vista Charter Academy on Thursday.

Wyoming police were called Wednesday to investigate a threat of violence against the school that was going to happen Thursday. Out of caution, the school decided to cancel classes.

Investigators have spoken to students who would have had access to the bathroom and have found no evidence it was a credible threat. There will be a police presence at the school Friday when it reopens.
