ARCADIA — Officials placed Arcadia High School on lockdown Wednesday after school administrators received an email they construed as a potential bomb threat, police said.
Police were summoned to the campus, 180 Campus Drive, about noon, Arcadia police Sgt. Jason Davis said. After a search of the campus turned up nothing dangerous, students were released from school at the normal dismissal time shortly after 3 p.m.
The threat came in the form of an email, however further details were not immediately available, the sergeant said.
The lockdown continued for the rest of the school day as officers searched the campus room-by-room, the sergeant said.
School officials used text and phone messages to keep parents posted on the situation, Arcadia Unified School District spokeswoman Marilyn Daleo said.
Campus Drive was closed to through traffic between Santa Anita Avenue and Park Avenue during the incident.
The investigation into the potential threat remained ongoing, Davis said.
