EDINA, Minn. — Officials have identified a 10-year-old and 11-year-old girl in connection to the threats that closed some Edina Public School campuses on Wednesday.

According to school officials, Edina police were contacted after two messages were left on Normandale Elementary's voicemail. 

Due to the messages, Superintendent Stacie Stanley said the Edina Community Center, Southview and Concord campuses were to close on Wednesday. The closures included Normandale, Early Learning Center and Spanish Dual Language. 

Edina police identified the two girls later on Wednesday. They are not current or former students of the Edina district, and were released to their parents.

Their case will be presented to the Hennepin County Attorney's Office. Police added that there was no threat to the public.


Last week, a threat posted to Snapchat prompted school officials in Edina to switch Edina High School and Valley View Middle School to online learning. A 17-year-old boy has since been charged.
