🚨 A threat was received at Trenton Public School's administrative offices

Bomb threats were made against two New Jersey school districts Thursday morning forcing one district to close.

The delayed opening was then upgraded to a full closure.

"Low risk" threat

Marlboro police Capt. Stephen Levy said the department is investigating the source of the threat. It has been deemed "low risk and low credibility."

The adjacent municipal building was also checked out of an abundance of caution, Mayor Jonathan Hornick told New Jersey 101.5.
