EAST MACHIAS, Maine — School will be canceled Thursday at Washington Academy, according to the school’s website.

“The administration team has decided to cancel school for tomorrow Thursday, January 21, 2016,” a post on the site stated. No reason was given.

Machias Memorial High School was closed on Wednesday due to a bomb threat.

Scott Porter, superintendent of Machias Bay Area Schools, said Wednesday afternoon the threat to Machias Memorial High School was “communicated to a staff member” in the morning, while buses were transporting some of the school’s 125 students.
