Monroe police Lt. Brian H. McCauley said the call was received at 9:39 a.m., according to the Hartford Courant.
The building was evacuated as a precaution and and students were moved to the nearby Monroe School. Police said they will finish their school day there.
There was no evidence of a threat after police thoroughly searched the SHES school. Police are concentrating on investigating the call and caller, according to McCauley.
