MONROE, Conn. — Sandy Hook Elementary school in Monroe, Conn. has been evacuated after a “low level” bomb threat was called in, the school district’s superintendent told FOX CT.

The district told FOX CT the bomb threat was called in around 9:30 a.m. The building and grounds were checked, and no evidence of an actual threat was found, police said.

Students at the school were transferred to nearby Jockey Hollow Middle School where they were picked up from dismissal.

Police are investigating the incident.

A gunmen struck SandyHook Elementary School in Newtown in December 2012, killing 20 first-grade students and six educators. The students at that school resumed classes in the neighboring town of Monroe, at a school also called Sandy Hook Elementary.

The original building was torn down last year.
