(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The St. Joseph School District says there is no reason to believe there is any threat to Central High School.

This comes a day after the district received a screenshot of a social media message that read: "Be ready central high school, F*** you."

After investigating, police say the threat was made towards another Central High School located in West Virginia.

An automated phone call was sent out to parents Wednesday night notifying them of the message.

The district says it will still have an increased police presence at Central when students return to school.

"The SJSD takes student safety and all threats seriously and although this particular case appears to be resolved we encourage anyone with concerns about school safety to contact police and/or school officials immediately," the district said in a press release.

We have had rain off and on this Saturday across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. Scattered showers will continue off and on through the evening and overnight hours but should start to clear up as we head towards the morning. Temperatures will slowly start to warm Sunday into Monday as sunshine returns and conditions start to dry out. Another cold front is headed our way Monday night and that will bring us a chance for rain and possibly some snow into Tuesday morning as the colder air surges into our area. Temperatures look to stay unseasonably cool through the rest of the next week.
