Ardsley High Students Return to Class After Threat

This story was updated at 1:40 p.m.

ARDSLEY, N.Y. -- Ardsley High School was given the "all clear" by police around 1:30 p.m. Monday after police and four dogs from the K-9 Unit swept the building following a  bomb threat, Ardsley school Superintendent Lauren Allan said in an email sent to parents.

Classes will be resumed and students will be dismissed at the regular time today, Allan said. Allan's email said police do not think this case is connected to a bomb threat made at the Solomon Schechter School Monday morning. Students at Solomon Schechter's campuses in White Plains and Hartsdale, were sent home for the day.

Ardsley High School was evacuated Monday shortly after noon and several police and fire officials responded to the scene.

Police did not let any cars onto the property and directed drivers to pass through the area and police tape was placed across an entry to the high school parking lot, while the bomb-sniffing dogs swept the building.
