KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police have increased their presence and Belton Middle School is on a lock and teach procedure after someone made a social media threat against the school.

A district spokeswoman says the school has been in communication with parents about the threat, which also includes the Freshman Center.

Lock and teach, in which students and teachers continue normal classroom instruction but movement within the building is limited, will continue for the rest of the day, the district says.

Belton Police continue to investigate the threat.
