BOROUGH PARK, Brooklyn — Students and staff have returned to a Brooklyn high school after they were evacuated Wednesday morning because of a bomb threat, city officials said.

Police confirm that a threat was made against FDR High School in Borough Park, located at 5800 20th Ave. The school serves some 3,000 students, the city said.

City emergency officials warned at the time to expect traffic delays, road closures and emergency crews near 20th Avenue and 59th Street.

All students from FDR High School were relocated to New Utrecht High School at 1601 80th St., the city’s emergency management office said. By noon, the students were allowed back to FDR High School and will be dismissed from that location.

Additional details were not immediately available.
