Schools in Circle will be closed Monday.

A post on the Circle Public Schools’ Facebook page states the closure is for the “safety of students and staff.”

Although the posts don’t specifically mention why, it appears the schools have been dealing with a threat since Dec. 20.

On that day, the school wrote on its Facebook page a threat was received and law enforcement will be present.


Then on Jan. 1, as students were getting ready to return from Christmas break, the schools made a decision to lock doors to all buildings.

A newsletter on the school’s website instructs students to go to the library or auditorium if they have a class outside of the high school, and that there would be closed campus lunch.

Then, late last night, a Facebook post stated: “For the safety of our staff and students, we are closing school tomorrow.”
