Manchester Township High School will reopen on Thursday, a day after authorities say a threat was made against the building.
The superintendent's office confirmed that classes will resume on Thursday and Superintendent of Schools David Trethaway is recording a phone message that will be delivered to parents alerting them to the situation.
Students were dismissed at 10:45 a.m. Wednesday after an undisclosed threat on the building was discovered. An emergency email message was delivered shortly after 11 a.m.
"We've taken precautionary measures and evacuated the school," said Manchester Chief of Police Brian Klimakowski at that time. He added that the threat did not appear to be credible and declined to comment on how it was made.
K-9 units from the Monmouth County Sheriff's Department and the Joint Base Task Force conducted "a thorough search of the building," said Manchester Police Capt. Lisa Parker.
Police continue to investigate the incident, Parker said.
The afternoon middle school session at the building was canceled for Wednesday, according to the district.
Also responding to the scene were the Manchester and Ridgeway volunteer fire departments and the township's Office of Emergency Management.
