Students in Los Angeles Back in School After Terror Threat

Schools were closed Tuesday after a threat was emailed to school officials.

— -- Students in Los Angeles are back in class today after a possible terror threat forced the closure of schools in the district Tuesday.

LAPD officers in uniform will be walking the hallways and classrooms Wednesday to "ease the transition," Police Chief Charlie Beck said Tuesday night.

The move to have police officers in schools today comes out of "an abundance of caution," Beck said.

The city's schools were shut down after school officials received an email threatening violence against students, including attacks with assault rifles, police said.

The closures cost the school district $29 million, according to Tom Torlakson, California State Superintendent of Public Instruction. More than 1,500 schools were affected.
