In an email to parents on August 11, the district said the first closure was due to "unspecified threats, and possible vandalism and destruction of the educational process."
The district was originally scheduled to reopen Monday.
The district has not released any information on the threats, however, police are investigating an aggravated assault involving three Blue Ridge students.
Police say a 17-year-old girl lured a 19-year-old to Show Low Lake where a 17-year-old and 16-year-old boy assaulted the older teen.
Police say the victim was seriously injured and had to be flown to a hospital in Phoenix.
The district is located in the east-central part of Arizona in Navajo County.
