    Administrators at Cherry Hill High School East were notified of a threatening message written on a wall on one of the bathrooms.

    Officials at the school let students out early and canceled all afterschool activities as a precaution.

    The Cherry Hill Police Department searched through the building and declared the school was safe. Cherry Hill East will open tomorrow as scheduled.

    "Students should report to their Period F classroom tomorrow at 7:30 am to collect any belongings that were left there prior to the evacuation," wrote school superintendent Maureen Reusche in a message to students. "Students will then proceed to Period D and continue with the school day. The deadline for homework assignments originally due on Tuesday, September 24, is extended to the next time the class meets.  Likewise, tests originally scheduled for tomorrow will be administered the next time the class meets."

    Police continue to investigate the incident. School officials say the person or people responsible for the message will face disciplinary action and possibly criminal charges.

    Cherry Hill East, located at 1750 Kresson Road, was ranked the 345th best high school in the country in a 2013 report from the Daily Beast.
