ARVADA - Swanson Elementary School was evacuated due to a threat, according to Arvada Police.
Police say they were originally called to the school in the 6000 block of West 68th Avenue in Arvada because a fire alarm was pulled. However, when they arrived, they realized it was actually a bomb threat.
Police found a backpack that smells like vinegar, so they evacuated the school.
Kids were taken to the west side of the elementary school. Authorities say if parents want to pick up their kids, they need to bring a form of photo ID to do so.
The sweep was completed around 10:30 a.m., and school resumed.
