Two Kansas City, Kan., middle schools were evacuated because of threats this morning. The students have since returned to their buildings.
Rosedale and Central middle schools were evacuated after receiving threats, said a school district spokeswoman, Tammy Dodderidge.
She said the first threat was received about 10:51 a.m. to Rosedale Middle School, and within 10 to 15 minutes, another threat was received at Central Middle School.
Schools were evacuated, police were called, the administration was notified, she said. Students at Rosedale were taken to the school stadium, where they stayed until the buildings were checked and one was cleared. It took less than an hour to clear the classrooms, she said. They were back in class by 11:49 a.m.
At Central, there was a similar process, with the students waiting at nearby Whittier Elementary School until the building was cleared.
Parents were notified through a messaging system, Dodderidge said.
