Peoria Police Department Spokeswoman Amy Dotson says police responded about 2:30. She says the remaining faculty and students participating in extracurricular activities were evacuated from the building.

“After that, the officers remained in the building in search of any validity of a threat. Nothing was located.”

Dotson would not confirm the nature of the threat. But the students doing outdoor activities were not interrupted during the evacuation.

The building was declared safe by 3:50.
