WHITEHALL, Ohio (WTVN) -- Classes are taking place as scheduled in the Whitehall Schools District Wednesday, despite a threat against the district.

Police say someone called Whitehall-Yearling High School on Tuesday to threaten violence, but investigators quickly deemed the call a hoax.

There's no word yet of any arrests and there will be more officers patrolling the schools as a precaution.

Meantime, two central Ohio teenagers are facing charges, accused of making threats against their schools.

A Groveport-Madison High School student was arrested Tuesday on felony charges after police say he made several threats this week, including one that canceled classes on Tuesday.

And, in Dublin, police say a 17-year-old Coffman High School student was slapped with misdemeanor charges threatening to hurt specific classmates.
