MID-MICHIGAN (WJRT) (10/8/2019) - An undisclosed threat led to Reese High and Middle schools being placed in a shelter in place mode Tuesday morning.

Reese Elementary School was in secure mode, according to a post by Reese Public Schools on Facebook.

The threat was received at 9:05 a.m. and the middle-high school building immediately begin sheltering in place. Administrators did not explain what the threat was, but they were working with police.

A Tuscola County Sheriff's Office K-9 team went through one of school buildings to make sure everything is OK. The Michigan State Police and local authorities also assisted with the search.

Investigators deemed the threat to be not credible. All precautions were lifted at 11:55 a.m. and the schools returned to normal activities.

Police were still investigating who is responsible for the threat and working with the Tuscola County Prosecutor's Office on the case.
