LAS VEGAS (AP) - School officials in Las Vegas say they received a threat similar to ones reported by districts from Miami to San Francisco, but didn’t close campuses at the nation’s fifth-largest school district.

A Clark County School District spokeswoman says administrators discovered an emailed threat after 9 a.m. Thursday similar to those received this week in Los Angeles, New York, Houston and other cities.

She says officials deemed the threat “less than credible.”

The district sent a letter to parents saying principals and school staff had been asked to stay alert and keep students calm and focused on learning.

It says it has crisis plans in place and police trained to detect and respond to threats.

The district has 356 campuses and more than 320,000 students.
