Officials are investigating after a threat was made against a Springfield school.

Springfield Public Schools spokesperson Azell Cavaan said that a threat was made to STEM Middle School on social media Monday by a student.

Parents have been notified of the situation via a phone call from the school department.

Cavaan noted that there will be an extra police presence in the area on Tuesday. She added that the district is cooperating with police with the investigation and will follow the student Code of Conduct with regard to any disciplinary actions.
