RAMONA, Okla. (AP) - Two more northeastern Oklahoma school districts have canceled classes because of threats.

The Caney Valley district in Washington County and Locust Grove district in Mayes County canceled classes on Friday - the last day of classes before the Christmas break.

Caney Valley's website says two middle school students threatened on to harm other students on Friday and were arrested. Their names and ages were not released. Locust Grove's website says classes were canceled because "rumors of possible incidents" could not be ruled out.

Bartlesville schools canceled classes Wednesday following a threat and a separate report of a man with a gun near the school.

Caney Valley Superintendent Rick Peters told radio station KRIG that canceling classes was "prudent" in light of the school shooting in Connecticut and other threats.
