A bomb threat forced the evacuation of students and faculty at Scarsdale High School Thursday.
There was a strong police presence outside the school as police and bomb-sniffing dogs searched the building.

The county police bomb squad searched the entire school and found nothing suspicious.
According to officials, the high school has received many bomb threats in the past year and a half. On the same day a year ago, an e-mail was sent to the principal about a bomb threat. Police are investigating the origin of Thursday?s threat, which is a felony punishable by up to seven years in prison.
