Cloquet, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) -- Cloquet police say there is no danger for students, faculty or the community following a bomb threat at Cloquet High School yesterday..

Still, Cloquet officers didn't take any risks today, and have maintained an increased police presence at the school throughout the day.

Deputy Chief Terry Hill says nothing was found to indicate any danger during a thorough sweep of the property with a bomb sniffing dog.

Hill added they have not yet found those responsible for making the threat, written on a wall inside the school.

Class went on as scheduled today.

Yesterday, Cloquet police were reported to a bomb threat to Cloquet High School that was supposed to occur on Friday, April 27th.

Authorities shut down the school after classes got out and swept the entire school for anything unusual. A bomb sniffing dog was brought up from the Twin Cities to help in the search.

This isn't the first bomb threat for the Cloquet School District, but authorities say threats like these are rare, and when they do happen, they don't take them lightly.
