(WCSC) -

All public schools in Nashua New Hampshire will be closed today after school officials received a detailed threat of violence involving the city's two high schools.

Nashua is the second largest city in the state and is just south of Manchester, where the Democratic Presidential candidates debated Saturday night.

State and federal officials are investigating the credibility of the threat.

The school's Superintendent announced the closures out of an abundance of caution, because the threat is specific and extends to several schools.

Seventeen public schools are included in the district with more than 11,000 students. 

Parents were alerted to the closure through the district's phone alert system.
