C. Pa. official: Students safe after school threat

WILLIAMSBURG, Pa. (AP) — A central Pennsylvania school official says students are safe but classes are dismissing early as a precaution following a threat to an elementary school.

Williamsburg School District Superintendent Linda Smith says the school has already been evacuated. The high school was also going to dismiss students early for the day, later Friday morning.

Police were already on the scene. Smith says everyone is accounted for and “completely safe,” and that the evacuations were just for precautionary reasons.

Williamsburg is just more than 100 miles east of Pittsburgh. The school district in Blair County has about 500 students.
