Students were evacuated from Forest Lake Elementary School on Monday afternoon after a bomb threat, a school district spokeswoman said.

Police and fire personnel searched the school, in the central portion of Forest Lake, but nothing was found, said Renee Reedy.

Students were taken to nearby Forest View Elementary and will be bused home from there, she said.

The threat was made by phone at 12:15 p.m. Reedy said she didn’t know the nature of the call.

Forest Lake police are investigating, she said.
