CROWN HEIGHTS, Brooklyn — Students are returning to class Friday afternoon following a non-credible bomb threat made at Clara Barton High School in Brooklyn.

The Classon Avenue school evacuated Friday morning around 11:40 after it received the bomb threat, police officials said. NYPD officers swept the school and did not find any suspicious devices. The school was cleared shortly before 12:30 and students have begun returning to their classes.

This is not the first threat made against a Brooklyn high school this week.

Several schools that share a location were evacuated in Park Slope Thursday after a bomb threat that was not credible. The bomb threat was called in to a student at the Millennium High School, which shares a campus with John Jay High School, Millennium High School, Park Slope Collegiate and the Secondary School for Law. They were all evacuated around noon.
