WHITEFISH - The ongoing investigation into threats that forced most schools in Flathead County to cancel classes on Thursday and Friday continues -- and so do the ramifications for students.

Whitefish Schools Superintendent Heather Davis Schmidt said in a statement posted Friday morning on Facebook that," school districts throughout the valley will not be hosting or traveling to any athletic or extracurricular activities today and through the weekend."

The decision was made after administrators consulted with law enforcement and were been advised that the situation has not been resolved," Davis Schmidt said.

There has been no decision made yet about whether or not classes will resume on Monday. Davis Schmidt says Whitefish schools will contact parents no later than 6 p.m. on Sunday with an update.

Columbia Falls schools report that all sports practices and events -- including travel to other schools -- as well as Drivers Education classes -- have been canceled through the weekend.

At this time no decision has been made regarding canceling school in Columbia Falls on Monday, Sept. 18. Further information will be sent out no later than 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Bigfork High School has called off Friday's public tours of the high school. School officials will attempt to reschedule the event.

Additionally, Flathead Valley Community College has canceled all activities that were set to be held on campus on Friday -- including the Fall Concert Series.

Friday's decision means that homecoming festivities in Whitefish have been canceled. Several football games -- including Sentinel v. Flathead, Helena v. Glacier, Stevensville v. Columbia Falls, Corvallis v. Whitefish and Lincoln County v. Bigfork have also been called off.

Glacier Symphony has announced that due to the closure of the Kalispell venue for the R. Carlos Nakai and Peter Kater special concert on Sept 17, the concert has been moved to the O'Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish.

Sunday's concert will begin at 3 p.m. and al seating at the venue will be general admission. The doors will open at 2:15 pm. There will be concert tickets available at the door for $30. Visit the website www.gscmusic.org for concert information.
