Los Alamos Middle School administration announced at 12:36 p.m. by email that the facility is under lockdown.
“We had a security tip invoving a student,” the email read. “To ensure student safety we placed the school on lockdown and will provide more information soon. Everyone is safe.”
A follow- up email was sent which reads as follows:
“We received a credible threat today generated through the SSARS anonymous tip App. Based on this tip the Middle School went into a Lock Down via LAPD. Because of our prior training and drills staff and students knew what to do and followed procedures really well. The investigation is complete and the threat no longer exists. The school is back on a normal schedule. Counselors from across the district deployed to LAMS and are available for students and families.”
That email was forwarded to media at 2 p.m.
