MEDFORD - A threat at Medford Area Senior High Thursday sent the district and law enforcement into high alert.
Tonight we can tell you police have made an arrest.
Police haven't told us yet what the threat was, but Medford high school staff found it in a girls bathroom at the end of the school day Thursday.
Police and sheriff's deputies searched every student entering the school Friday. The district gave parents the option to keep their kids home. Only about a quarter of enrolled students were there Friday.
District Administratior Pat Sullivan said police made an arrest, and the district and police no longer feel student safety is in question.
He looks forward to all Medford students returning to school Monday and getting things back to normal.

VILAS COUNTY - When Dee Burlingame walks into the Sayner Cemetery, she walks to the very back of it, near the wooded area.
"When we bought that plot we did so laughing and saying that the deer would come and run across us," said Burlingame.
Dee and her husband of more than 34 years, John Burlingame, have called Sayner their home for many years, even though they met in Cleveland, Ohio. But about a year ago, Dee's life took an unexpected turn.
