Students in 12 northern New Jersey towns got an unexpected day off Thursday after a threatening letter warned that several schools would be "blown out" at 11:30 a.m. Emerson's mayor received the letter Wednesday, and police and sheriff's deputies searched about 60 school buildings there and in surrounding northern New Jersey towns through the night but found no explosives, Bergen County Police Capt. Kevin Hartnett said. Classes, canceled for about 14,000 students Thursday, were to resume Friday.
