Miami Trace Local Schools in Washington Court House were closed Monday due to an online threat.

The school district posted a banner on their website stating, "All Miami Trace school buildings are closed for Monday, October 16, 2017 due to an online threat."

School officials said they were working to secure all of the buildings. Canines were called out to search for potential threats. No other details were immediately available.

This incident was the second time Miami Trace has canceled classes this school year due to a potential threat.

Parents said they were on edge.

"It's scary... You think it's a prank, or maybe a hoax... But you don't know," said Heath Shoemaker.

Matthew Depew said, "Find whoever it is and don't give them a slap on the wrist. Put them in jail or something... Slap on the wrist is just a slap on the wrist."

ABC 6/FOX 28 is working to confirm more details as to the nature of the threat.
