(ABC 6 News) – An online threat has forced the cancelation of classes on Monday in the Grand Meadow Public School district, according to an email sent to district parents Sunday evening.
According to an email from Supt. Paul Besel, a threat was made to a Grand Meadow student via an online video game.
