FRANKFORD (WPVI) -- Students have been dismissed early from Frankford High School after the report of a possible threat, police say.
Police tell us that school administrators received an anonymous call Wednesday morning saying there were students in the building armed with guns.
As a result, the school was placed on lock down and police were called to the scene.
The investigation determined the threat to be unfounded.
As a precaution, the students were dismissed around 1:00 p.m. Wednesday.
Authorities say, Wednesday was a scheduled in-service day and the students were already slated to be dismissed early at 2 pm. So, when students were dismissed, buses were already at the school.
Police are continuing to search the school, located in the 5000 block of Oxford Avenue, as a precautionary measure to be certain there is no danger.
