Boise Police are investigating a possible bomb threat at Liberty Elementary School, 1740 E. Bergeson Street in east Boise. 

Students were evacuated about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday after officials found what was described as "graffiti that made reference to a bomb" on several exteriors walls of the school.

Boise Police officers and bomb-sniffing K9s searched the buildings, but did not find anything.

There were no signs of a break-in, police said.

“Everyone is fine, everyone is safe,” Hollar stated.

The “suspicious circumstances” call came in shortly after 8:30 a.m., according to an Ada County dispatch supervisor. Students were allowed to return to their classrooms about 10:15 a.m.

Staff and students were relocated to an alternate site, the Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Hollar stated. 

He said the School District will be turning over surveillance camera video to the Boise Police Department for further investigation
