Social Media Threat Shuts Down Southern California High School

View from the running path at Southern California Carlsbad Beach wall

Southern California is on alert this morning as Carlsbad High School has been shut down for a second day due to an on campus threat. An Instagram post reportedly stated that someone was going to “shoot up” the high school either Monday, January 5th, or today Tuesday January 6th.

A parent saw the post Monday morning and called the school to inform them. The North San Diego county high school released students from their classes yesterday at 11:15 am due to the threat.

MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT- 01/05/15 5:12 PM

Dear CUSD Families:
I wanted to provide you with an update regarding an incident that occurred today at Carlsbad High School.
This morning, January 5, 2015, Carlsbad High School administrators were made aware of a threat to CHS via Instagram. In consultation with the Carlsbad Police Department, CHS was placed in lock down status as a precautionary measure. After it was determined by Carlsbad Police Department that the campus was safe, students were released at 11:15 a.m. for the remainder of the day while the matter was investigated.
Both Carlsbad High School and Carlsbad Village Academy families have been kept apprised of the situation by their principals via email and phone messages throughout the day. In addition the district website was updated as information became available.
In consultation with Carlsbad Police Department – and in an abundance of caution – it has been determined to keep our CHS and CVA campuses closed through tomorrow, January 6, 2015, due to the nature of the threat and as an added safety measure. All other schools in the District shall remain open. The safety of our students and staff remains our top priority.
If you or your children have any information that could assist in the investigation, please contact the Carlsbad Police Department or our Director of Pupil Services, Tim Evanson, at tevanson@carlsbadusd.net. The loss of this instructional day (or any additional days lost by future threats) may need to be made up later this school year.
Thank you for your support and understanding during this difficult and unfortunate situation.

Suzette Lovely
Superintendent

The police are still active in their investigation but classes are expected to return back to normal tomorrow. It is not known at this time if the social media post was a credible threat or not, but thankfully, the school and police are erring on the side of caution.
And in case you were wondering, the loss of a day of instruction will need to be made up at some point later in the school year.

Snow Tourists Shut Down Southern California

This week, something outside the norm hit our southern California lifestyle. SNOW! Temecula even got enough snow that people were making snow angels. There was so much snow, even in San Diego county, that it seems everyone and their carload of kids wanted to go up to Julian to see the snow covered apple orchards and have some pie. The only HUGE problem with that? The Southern California roads were already difficult at times without the snow, and now they were packed with people that have no idea how to drive in the snow!

It was a football lover’s week here in San Diego. I mean, besides the San Diego Chargers losing and not making it into the playoffs last night. Two bowl games played over the week brought out a lot of the home team spirit. First Navy played San Diego State University in the Poinsettia Bowl and then, USC played Nebraska in the Holiday Bowl. While USC and Navy are not considered home town they do have close ties to the Southern California lifestyle and there were more than enough fans to go around.
