NYC stayed open when officials spotted typo in ‘Allah’ in email claiming to be from devout Muslim

Public schools in Los Angeles were set to reopen on Wednesday, a day after local officials canceled class for some 640,000 students in the nation’s second-largest school district over a threatened attack with bombs and guns later deemed a hoax.

The daylong shutdown cost $29million in state funding according to officials.

The threat, which was emailed late on Monday night, came from someone who claimed to be a devout Muslim prepared to launch an attack at multiple schools using bombs, nerve gas and rifles.

An almost identical email was sent to school officials in New York City, but the Mayor and NYPD Police Commissioner Bill Bratton declined to take the same action.
