MUNSTER — A possible threat at St. Thomas More Elementary School was reported to police earlier this month, investigated and deemed not credible, police said.

Munster police were notified of the possible threat about 7 p.m. Feb. 7 and opened an investigation, Lt. Ed Strbjak said.

Police worked with schools officials to investigate, and the possible threat was determined to be not credible, he said.

The school handled communication with parents and student discipline. If anyone has any additional information, they can call police, Strbjak said.

The Catholic Diocese of Gary declined to comment.

"We do not comment on student discipline matters for reasons of student privacy," Joe Majchrowicz, director of schools for the Catholic Diocese of Gary, said in an email.

Times staff writer Carmen McCollum contributed to this report.
