Oak Park police gave the school an "all clear" around noon after bomb-detecting dogs searched the campus at 505 Washington Boulevard, according to Principal Peter Groom.
A statement from Principal Peter Groom said Oak Park police informed officials about a bomb threat toward the school Monday morning around 10:20 a.m.
Students went to Ascension Church while the campus was being searched and will return to the classes which they departed. Period 10 will conclude at 2:20 p.m. and period 11 will conclude at 2:55 p.m., according to Groom.
The nature of the bomb threat was not immediately clear.
Parents were very happy with how the school handled the situation.
"It was just scary, and I know the kids were scared so that made me a little upset, and parents were worried, but Fenwick got an email out ASAP, so we were all good," said parent, Maureen Harnett
