NEWTON, Conn. – Newtown Police say a bomb threat caused Sandy Hook Elementary School to be evacuated.
Thursday, there were a rash of bomb threats throughout the country, but police say they aren’t related, and that the threat was specific to the school.
Police say that the school was evacuated, and a sweep was conducted. The school superintendent decided that in the best interest for the faculty and students, it would be best to dismiss them for the day.
Police do not believe it was a credible threat, but they are still investigating where it came from.
