MILFORD, Connecticut — Milford officials have closed a middle school for the day as police investigate what they call a "low credibility" threat.

School Superintendent Elizabeth Feser sent an email to parents saying West Shore Middle School will be closed on Wednesday to ensure everyone's safety.

Officials haven't disclosed the nature of the threat. Some parents say it was made on Instagram.

Feser says police are trying to determine who made the threat.
