LA students returning to school after threat
LOS ANGELES - Students are heading back to class a day after an emailed threat triggered a shutdown of the vast Los Angeles Unified School District.
School buses are rolling Wednesday morning and parents are dropping off children at campuses in the nation's second-largest school district.
The decision Tuesday to close the district with 640,000 students came after a school board member received an email threatening a large-scale attack.
District Superintendent Ramon Cortines says he ordered the closure as a precaution.
New York City schools received a similar threat but officials there concluded that it was a hoax.
