A Tarzana school said it will close Friday after the Los Angeles Police Department received a possible threat to the campus.

Woodcrest School administrators announced the closure late Thursday in an email to parents and staff. The school advised parents to tell their children that a “plumbing issue” on campus caused the closure.

“Please stay calm and know that our number one priority is the safety of your children,” administrators said in the email. They added that an officer was being sent to monitor the school.
