Police clear Glendale elementary school after it received bomb threat

Police have cleared R.D. White Elementary School after it was evacuated Monday morning when someone called in a bomb threat, Glendale Unified officials said.

The anonymous call was received at 8:29 a.m., Glendale Unified officials said, prompting an evacuation of nearly 900 students to the nearby Whole Foods, where parents were allowed to pick up their children.

By midday, most students had been picked up. The remaining students were transferred to the YWCA on Lexington Drive.

The investigation remains ongoing and the school is scheduled to reopen for classes on Tuesday.
