Oak Park police said they were contacted about a call to the school reporting a bomb around 10:20 a.m. Monday.
In a statement on the Fenwick High School website, Principal Peter Groom said the school building has been evacuated until a “thorough investigation” can occur.
“All students, faculty and staff are currently safe and away from the building, and there is no immediate threat to their wellbeing,” Groom wrote.
As Oak Park police searched the premises with bomb-detecting dogs, Groom said students congregated at Ascension Church.
After the search was completed, Groom said students were allowed to return to class.
