Glen Rock authorities are continuing to investigate a threat to a borough elementary school last November that ended the day early for students and disrupted Election Day polling.

In an update last week on the progress of the investigation, according to a a report by the Glen Rock Gazette, Councilman Michael O'Hagan, the council's public safety chair, said borough police have subpoenaed phone records in attempts to identify the caller.

Authorities also interviewed those known to have called Hamilton School around the time the building received the anonymous threat, the report said. No suspects have been identified.

The caller, made to the school the afternoon of Nov. 5, told school staff "to get everyone out of the building" before hanging up. A high school in Lodi had also received a threatening call that morning. The two threats, both proven unfounded, came a day after a gunman forced an hours-long lockdown of the Garden State Plaza.

Joan Davis was brutally murdered almost 4 years ago and her killer still hasn't been found. Let's keep things in perspective a bit.

RidgeWoodie, Huh? So, because a person was brutally murdered four years ago and her killer apparently remains at large, means we shouldn't follow up on this threat at an elementary school because no one got hurt and it's apparently not important enough? // What "perspective" are you talking about? What are you trying to say?
