Threat Leads to Evacuation of Sandy Hook School
A bomb threat called into Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary School last week led authorities to order students, including many who lived through the 2012 shootings at the school's original Newtown site, out of its current building.
Police checked the school and grounds and did not find evidence of danger, according to Monroe Police Lt. Brian McCauley. He said the evacuation was ordered as a precaution.
After the December 2012 shootings, students began taking classes at a school, also called Sandy Hook Elementary, in a neighboring town. The original school was torn down last year.
