A graduation ceremony for three Lake Elsinore area schools has been postponed due to what school officials call a safety concern.

According to the Lake Elsinore Unified School District, the ceremony for Keith McCarthy Academy, Ortega High School and Valley Adult School will be rescheduled. Officials did not give a makeup date for the graduation ceremony as of Wednesday night.

The school district said in a statement that Riverside County Sheriff's Department is investigating the alleged threat.
