“THE ACTIONS WE ARE TAKING TODAY ARE SWIFT AND APPROPRIATE.” –
All Los Angeles Unified School District campuses were closed Tuesday morning after a bomb threat was called in to a school board member, police said. Over 600,000 school children have been told to stay home. This has been called a “credible threat” and will be scanning schools for anything suspicious. This is different and has been called more of a warning than a threat.
It was unclear when the threat was made and to which school board member, but the situation prompted the LAUSD to close all schools effective immediately, according to the Los Angeles School Police.
Students and staff were directed to stay away from all campuses.
The Los Angeles Police Department was assisting with the threat investigation.
