ANKENY, Iowa (AP) - Security will be increased Friday at a suburban Des Moines school although officials don’t think the threat that prompted the action is credible.

Officials say the security sweeps and extra officers at scheduled for Southview Middle School in Ankeny are part of the Ankeny school district’s standard threat response. The district didn’t provide details of the threat.

Access to the building will be limited, and students won’t be able to take bags inside. Morning activities are canceled but classes and sporting events will be held.
