Santa Maria High School Lockdown – After receiving a bomb threat, Santa Maria High School was placed on lockdown; however, the police later determined that the threat was baseless and lifted the lockdown. Santa Maria High School resumed normal operations after the lockdown was lifted after it was determined by the authorities that the bomb threat was not genuine.
Kenny Klein, the spokesperson for the Santa Maria Joint Unified High School District, stated that the lockdown that had been set at Santa Maria High School at 11:35 a.m. on Wednesday as a result of an anonymous call concerning a bomb threat on campus has been lifted. The lockdown had been implemented at the school as a consequence of the anonymous call. Shortly after the lockdown at Pioneer Valley High campus was lifted on Wednesday, an alleged bomb threat prompted the administrators at Santa Maria High School to place their campus in a state of lockdown.
An anonymous caller at 11:35 a.m. reported a bomb threat to the Santa Maria Joint Union High School system, according to a representative for the school system. As a consequence of this, the campus was placed under lockdown. After conducting a search of the school campus, officers from the Santa Maria Police Department came to the conclusion that there was no evidence to support the threat. According to Klein, the lockdown of the school was released at the mark corresponding to one hour and twelve minutes since the incident began.
