Lockdowns lifted at two South Bay schools after bomb threat

Posted: Updated:

NATIONAL CITY (CNS/CBS 8) - An anonymous email claiming that a bomb had been planted at one of two South Bay public schools prompted lockdowns at the campuses Tuesday while police investigated.

The threatening electronic message prompted the security alerts at Olivewood Elementary and Sweetwater High in National City about 9 a.m., said Nadege Johnson, a spokeswoman for Sweetwater Union High School District. It was not immediately clear who received the email, she said.

Administrators kept all students secured in their classrooms while authorities sought to determine if any hazards existed at the campus, according to police.

The lockdowns were lifted Tuesday afternoon, with Sweetwater High students released at their normal dismissal time, according to the San Diego Schools Police Officers Association Twitter page. Students at Olivewood Elementary were also to be released at their normal dismissal time.

Parents are being directed to Peter Piper Pizza at E 30th St. and Highland Ave. for more information, according to the San Diego Schools POA Twitter page.
