TURNER — A threat against Leavitt Area High School that forced classes to go remote Wednesday was not credible, according to the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office.

The Sheriff’s Office alerted school Principal Eben Shaw of the potential threat Tuesday night,  Superintendent Kimberly Brandt said Wednesday. Investigators determined it was not credible. No other details were made available.

Students and staff will return to classes Thursday, Brandt said.

Leavitt Area High School is part of Maine School Administrative District 52, which serves Turner, Greene and Leeds. Other schools in the district remained open Wednesday.

Other districts in Androscoggin, Franklin and Oxford counties have closed schools recently in response to potential threats, including Lewiston, Wales-based Regional School Unit 4, Rumford-based RSU 10, and Mt. Blue in Farmington.
