EMPORIA, Va. (WRIC) — Greensville County schools were closed Friday as a result of a “received threat,” according to Greensville County Public Schools and the Greensville County Sheriff’s Office.

The notice was posted at 10:31 p.m. Thursday and included an apology to parents for the late warning.

A copy of the notice was also posted to the Greensville Sheriff’s Office Facebook page, but neither post specified what threat had been made.
