St John Vianney High School in Holmdel, New Jersey was evacuated and put on lockdown on Wednesday over a bomb threat.

The students were evacuated to St. Benedict’s and parents picked them up

All students are safe, the school said in an alert.

Dozens of police officers, including K-9 units, were on the scene investigating the threat.

The evacuation was prompted by a phone call reporting a bomb that was received around 11:40 a.m.

Parents are “running and scrambling” to pick up their children, according to Janet Ingrassia, who lives across the street. 

After multiple sweeps of the school, the threat was determined not real, reported the Asbury Park Press.

Line Road at Church Street was closed during the search.

Anyone with information should call police.
