A Pennsylvania school district has closed schools for a third consecutive day as police continue to investigate threats made against students and staff. 

The Central York School District canceled classes Friday following a series of threats on social media. Springettsbury Township Police Chief Dan Stump says they have received several tips and they have a few persons of interest, but no one has been taken into custody. 

Stump says a task force comprised of local, state and federal agencies is working on the case. 

District Superintendent Michael Snell says the missed days will be added to the end of the school year. He says there are no more make up days available. 

The district is scheduled to host a town hall discussion at Central York High Feb. 28.
