LOS ANGELES – The schools in Los Angeles are safe and will reopen Wednesday, Los Angeles Unified School District School Board President Steve Zimmer told reporters.

“We can now announce, and conclude, and tell you, and tell the community that we believe that our schools are safe, and we can reopen schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District tomorrow morning,” he said.

The FBI has determined that a threat against schools in the city was not credible, Mayor Eric Garcetti told reporters Tuesday.

“Whether it’s criminal mischief, whether it’s somebody testing vulnerabilities of multiple cities, we still do not know enough to say definitively,” he said. “What we do know is that it will be safe for our children to return to school tomorrow.”
