GREEN TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WXIX) - Police closed Oak Hill High School Tuesday night due to a threat on social media.

Oak Hills Schools Superintendent Jeffrey Brandt confirmed the threat in an email to parents.

The threat was attached to a school-sponsored social media page, Brandt says.

The district contacted Green Township police, who worked with district security personnel and the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office to shut down the school and conduct a search with K-9s.

“They have concluded there was no viable threat,” Brandt wrote.

The school will be closed for the remainder of the evening. It will reopen Wednesday morning as normal with extra police presence as a precaution.

The incident remains under investigation by the Green Township Police Department Criminal Investigation Section.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Green Township Police or Crimestoppers at 513 352-3040.

It’s the third Tri-State school to shut down in 48 hours amid police investigations into threats.

Wilmington schools were closed Tuesday due to a “security concern,” and an arrest was made after a threat against Deer Park schools on Monday.
