LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania high school has rescheduled its commencement ceremony a day after a student was arrested for allegedly making a threat that resulted in its cancellation.

The Manheim Central School District, located about 30 miles east of the state capitol of Harrisburg, will hold the ceremony Friday night.

The district says it was forced to cancel Thursday night’s ceremony after receiving reports of a threat made by a student earlier in the day.

The threat allegedly referenced the 1999 Columbine High School shootings, in which 15 people were killed including the two gunmen.

The school district says an unidentified student has been arrested, and the investigation into the “very serious threat” is ongoing.

Students were to be notified of details and the ceremony’s exact time later Friday.
