WEST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

A bomb threat was reported at a West Hartford school on Monday morning and it could be connected to other threats occurring throughout the country. 

The Federal Bureau-Investigation was notified after a bomb threat was called into the Hebrew High School on Bloomfield Avenue around 10:45 a.m.  

Officers were called to the school and after a search, authorities said they located nothing suspicious in nature. The Hebrew High School then returned to "normal operating procedures." 

Police in West Hartford said other threats were received at out-of-state Jewish Community Centers and Jewish day schools. 

The West Hartford Police Department is working with faith-based leaders about security concerns.  

The incident remains under investigation by West Hartford Police Detective Division.
