CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio — Cuyahoga Falls High School is closed due to a bomb threat, officials confirmed on Friday.

According to Superintendent Dr. Todd Nichols, an email sent to the Board of Education office Friday morning indicated that an IED device would detonate and cause critical damage to the school and students.

After consulting with the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, Nichols said he decided to close the school.

Several FOX 8 viewers say they were notified of the situation by the district Friday morning.

Cuyahoga Falls police and K-9 units were inside the school to do a thorough sweep, Nichols said.

“Nothing suspicious was located. An investigation has been launched by CFPD, in conjunction with Federal authorities,” Cuyahoga Falls police posted on its Facebook page.
