A threat locked down Hendrick Hudson High School for the second straight day.
The Frank G. Lindsey School, which is adjacent to the high school, was also on lockdown, but dismissed all the students at their regular time. The high school was dismissed at 4 p.m.
School officials say what prompted the lockdown was a threatening phone call that came into the assistant principal's office just after 2 p.m.
School officials are sharing few details about the call, only disclosing that the caller had gone on an obscene rant and demanded money before hanging up.
Wednesday was the second day in a row that a threatening phone call was placed to the school and a lockdown ordered.
State police brought in K-9s looking for explosives out of an abundance of caution, but nothing was found.
School officials say someone broke into the high school Monday night, smashing a window and stealing a computer.
