"All are safe. We are working with law enforcement to clear building for tomorrow," said the notice, posted on Facebook and Twitter.

The district said all after-school activities are also canceled for Monday.

The evacuation comes 11 days after the school went into lockdown after an earlier threat to "shoot up" the campus was posted on Facebook.
