GROSSE POINTE WOODS, Mich. (AP) — A bomb threat prompted officials at a southeastern Michigan high school to cancel morning classes.

Principal Kate Murray of Grosse Pointe North High School wrote in a Wednesday night email to parents, students and staff that an anonymous threat said a bomb would detonate Thursday morning at the school.

School administrators said the school would be closed Thursday morning at the recommendation of the Grosse Pointe Woods Public Safety Department. The school was expected to reopen to staff and students at noon.

Murray said the building would be searched throughout Wednesday night into Thursday morning for any suspected explosives.
