JEFFERSON HILLS, Pa. (AP) — An unspecified threat has closed down a western Pennsylvania school district heading into the Labor Day weekend.

West Jefferson Hills School District officials said Friday they were looking into a threat at Thomas Jefferson High School.

They sent word of the closure via Twitter and said the superintendent would issue a letter to parents later in the day.

WTAE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1JSHYTU) police were to have an increased presence at the high school if classes weren't canceled.

Jefferson Hills is about 11 miles south of downtown Pittsburgh.
