The Bolles School said its San Jose and Whitehurst campuses have been deemed safe by police after the campuses received a bomb threat Wednesday morning.

Students have now returned to their regular schedules, a representative for the school said.

The campuses are adjacent to each other on San Jose Boulevard.
