JOHNSTOWN, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado high school where a Spanish teacher is accused of allowing students to hit a piñata bearing a picture of President Donald Trump has been closed because of a threat against it on social media.

The school district says classes and all activities were cancelled Monday as a precaution and to give police time to investigate the situation involving Roosevelt High School in Johnstown, about 50 miles north of Denver.

Assistant Superintendent Jason Seybert wouldn’t comment on whether the threat had anything to do with the pinata allegations stemming from a Cinco de Mayo celebration that led to the teacher being placed on paid leave.

The Johnstown-Milliken School District says Facebook photos show a student with a bat Friday near the piñata that was tied to a tree.
