According to authorities, the All Saints School at 707 Washington St. received a bomb threat at 5:19 p.m. yesterday, prompting a response from investigative bureau detectives, the local emergency response unit, the Hoboken fire department and the NJ Transit K-9 Unit.

The school was evacuated and students and staff were transported to an undisclosed safe area, where surrounding buildings were canvassed as a precautionary measure, officials said.

Officers eventually deemed the building to be safe and clear and no one was injured in the incidence. After the building was deemed safe, administrators were able to again enter the building, police said.

Authorities remained on the scene in the immediate aftermath of the incident “to ease the concerns of parents and staff.” The threat remains under investigation, police said.
