YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A bookbag that prompted the evacuation of Hackensack  High School was left there by a student who told police he doesn’t like “dragging it around” the cafeteria at lunch, CLIFFVIEW PILOT has found.

The student said he regularly leaves the bag beneath the stairwell out of sight, then retrieves it when he needs it, Detective Capt. Thomas Salcedo told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

The Bergen County Bomb Squad was called in after someone spotted the bag just after 11 this morning, Salcedo said.

Students and teachers moved over to the Mount Olive Baptist Church’s school up the street.

All students and personnel have since returned.
