All-clear declared after Northwest Baltimore school building was evacuated because of bomb threat

Police gave an all-clear and students returned to classes Monday after a Northwest Baltimore school building was evacuated due to a bomb threat, a city schools spokeswoman said.

The roughly 1,000 students at Bard High School Early College, ConneXions charter school, and the Angela Y. Davis Leadership Academy, an alternative middle school program, left the building at 2801 N. Dukeland St. about noon, Baltimore schools spokeswoman Anne Fullerton said.

“There was a reported bomb threat,” Fullerton said in the afternoon. “The all-clear has been given, the children are safe, and school is underway again.”

Police responded and searched the building, then declared it safe, allowing students to re-enter and classes to resume, she said.

The bomb threat is under investigation, and no further details were available.

Bard, a public high school that allows students to take a two-year, tuition-free college course in liberal arts and sciences, has roughly 480 students. ConneXions has 516 students. An enrollment number for Davis, a program for sixth- and seventh-graders, was not available.
