At 11:30 a.m., Cuyahoga Falls High School was put on a "place and secure status," according to an AlertNow message from Principal Anne Alfano.
The message stated that school officials have been in contact with Cuyahoga Falls Police, and they believe there is no immediate threat.
Until a final determination is reached, students will be kept inside their classrooms.
Just after 1 p.m. Monday, the Cuyahoga Falls City Schools District sent out a second AlertNow message informing parents that "place and secure status" is not a lockdown.
Place and secure status is the equivalent to taking away students' hall passes, said Superintendent Dr. Todd Nichols.
At 2 p.m. Patch spoke with Alfano who said rumors began to circulate amongst students on Monday that there could be a possible threat at the high school.
Alfano said once the rumors gained momentum, they activated the place and secure status to bring about a sense of order, relief and awareness.
Alfano said no student was in danger on Monday.
The status will remain through the end of the school day, and will "hopefully" expire by tomorrow morning, she said.
"We want our students to feel secure," said Alfano. "We want our staff to feel secure."
