(Fargo, ND) -- Things are getting back to normal at one Fargo High School after a threat led to extra security being put in place this week.

The Fargo Public School District has confirmed to WDAY Radio that after an argument between two students Wednesday at Fargo North High School, a threat was made involving the school.

"On Wednesday evening, a report was made to administration of an exchange of words between two students that included a threat to safety," said District Communications Director AnnMarie Campbell in a statement released to WDAY Radio. "The incident was investigated by administration and the Fargo Police Department and the threat deemed not to be credible. There is no threat to safety of the students and staff at North High School."

Despite the threat being debunked, extra security was put in place to exercise caution in the wake of several school threats and shootings in recent weeks and months.

There is no word on if any students were disciplined for the threats being made.
