NISKAYUNA -- Students at Iroquois Middle School sheltered in place and missed their regular dismissal Thursday afternoon, after a threatening note found at the school sparked a police investigation.

Niskayuna police responded to the school after the note, a bomb threat, was discovered shortly after 2 p.m., according to an alert the district sent to families at 2:45 p.m. By 3:30 p.m., district officials sent another note saying students had been dismissed after a police investigation.  

Parents were asked to pick their students up from Rosendale Elementary School, and the buses were also staged at the elementary school. 

Niskayuna police and both the Albany and Schenectady county sheriff's departments responded to the bomb threat and investigated with canine units before releasing students.
