P.S. 164Q, located in Fresh Meadows.

A Fresh Meadows elementary school was evacuated and searched on Wednesday morning after it received a phoned-in bomb threat, officials said.

Students at P.S. 164 on 77th Avenue and 138th Street were forced to leave the building at about 11 a.m. on June 7 after the administration received a call that a bomb was going to go off in the next 10 minutes, police said.

Cops from the 107th Precinct checked the building for explosives, but did not find any device, an NYPD spokesman said. The investigation is now closed.

Students and administrators were allowed back into the building at 11:53 a.m.
