DENVER — Cherry Creek High School was one of three schools in the Metro area that sent students home early Wednesday.

Classes at Cherry Creek high were dismissed about 40 minutes early because of a threat that was made to the school, said Cherry Creek Schools.

The district did not elaborate what that threat said. Police checked it out and found it to be not credible. School was scheduled to resume Thursday on a normal schedule.

Buses were at the school and ran normal routes, officials said.  Students with cars were allowed to drive them home. Students without a way home were taken to Campus Middle School at 4785 S. Dayton Street in Englewood.

Greenwood Village police were on scene as a precaution.

The high school is one of three that ended classes early Wednesday. Alameda International High School in Lakewood ended their school day early because of a natural gas leak and Pitt Waller K-8 ended early after students complained about getting sick from an odor at the school.
