The Providence Creek Academy Board of Directors have decided to cancel school on Wednesday, Nov. 5.

The cancellation was announced in a message Tuesday morning.

"The board wishes to thank every member of the PCA family, parents, staff, and community members who have shared their concerns about recent events and the school in general," the message said.

"Law enforcement professionals have assured us that there is no viable risk to the school. The board appreciates everyone's feelings however, and in reference to those feelings, the board  has decided to close the school on Wednesday, Nov. 5 to allow everyone an opportunity for reflection."

Administrators and managers are to report to school as normal on Nov. 5.

The decision to cancel school on Wednesday came after two parent forums on Monday to discuss some personnel and school safety concerns at the school. In recent months a custodian was fired for having a gun on campus while the IT director resigned and then allegedly threatened the school board.

One parent at the Monday morning information meeting said a rumor was going around that a threat was made that something would happen at the school on Nov. 5.

Board of Directors President Amy Santos said she too had heard concerns from parents about something happening on Nov. 5, but other than that has no concrete information that specific threat was made.

Clayton Chief of Police Brian Hill said there was no viable threat to the school.

This story is still developing. More information is forthcoming regarding the cancellation of school and what are the next steps for the board and the school.
