STRONGSVILLE, Ohio — Classes were canceled Monday for a number of Strongsville schools because of menacing graffiti spray painted on the front of the high school Monday.

The Strongsville Police Department responded around 7:13 a.m.

“Although there was no credible information to warrant any validation of the threat, school officials decided to evacuate students while the police conducted a sweep of the building,” Strongsville police said in a news release.

The students were then sent home for the day.

According to the superintendent’s office, because the buses were used to take the high school students home, there were no buses available to transport elementary or preschool students to their respective schools.

For that reason, classes were canceled for the district’s elementary schools and preschools as well.

Classes at the middle school were held as normal.

The case remained under investigation.
