Sandy Hook Elementary School Evacuated Over Bomb Threat

NBC Connecticut

Sandy Hook Elementary School in Monroe, Connecticut, was evacuated this morning because of a bomb threat.

A bomb threat was called into the school at 9:39 a.m., police said.

As a precaution, the school was evacuated and students were brought to a neighboring school.  

The building and grounds were checked, and no evidence of the actual threat was found.

Students from the Sandy Hook School have been going to classes in the former Chalk Hill School in Monroe since January 2013, weeks after a gunman killed 20 first graders and six staff members during a rampage in their Newtown school.

Architects have designed plans to build a new school on the Newtown site, but construction has not started. It is expected to begin in spring 2015.

Students will be dismissed, police said, but they did not have information on when.

The investigation continues.
