Columbine High School is closed for the rest of the day after a series of bomb threats phoned in to the school this morning.
Students and staff members were taken across the street, and Clement Park -- adjacent to the school -- was evacuated as well.
The caller apparently phoned in several times beginning about 9:30 this morning.
The threats comes about six weeks before the eighth anniversary of the nation's deadliest school shooting. Two teenage gunmen killed 12 students and a teacher at Columbine on April 20th, 1999, before committing suicide.
Jefferson County School District spokeswoman Marlene Desmond says school officials followed procedure, evacuated the building, and summoned authorities to inspect the school and grounds.
Sheriff's office spokeswoman Jacki Kelley says it's NOT clear whether the caller made reference to the Columbine tragedy.
