At 9:30 a.m. a long line of parents were waiting outside the elementary school waiting to pick up their children.

"Well, of course you worry and you want them safe and you want the details but you also have to have faith in your staff and teachers to know that they are in the right place," said Ami Storle. "All the schools in the district have wonderful SRO's who have great communication with families and staff."

Officers didn't find anything suspicious in the school.
