A teenage girl has been arrested in the shooting threat that shut down Southern California’s Carlsbad High School on Monday and Tuesday this week.

On Monday morning someone posted a warning on social media site Instagram warning that they were going to do violence on the Carlsbad High School campus either Monday or Tuesday. The threat was reported to police by a parent and the high school was shut down Monday afternoon and the following Tuesday.

The UT San Diego said -

Investigators worked with the Internet Crimes Against Children task force to track the post to its author, Carlsbad city spokeswoman Jodee Sasway said Wednesday. She said police aided by the FBI and school district officials arrested the girl at her home on suspicion of making criminal threats.

Police did not find any indication that the teen had the means or intent to follow through with the threat, Sasway said.

“We understand how distressing such incidents can be for everyone involved,” police investigations Lt. Pete Pascual said in a statement. “The safety of our children is our top priority We are grateful for the assistance of the many outside resources that helped us to the expedited resolution of this incident.”

No word on why the teenager decided to post such a threat on Instagram, but I have a hard time imagining that this will not turn out well for her. This is not something that just goes away, especially in the age of digital media.

MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT- 01/05/15 5:12 PM
01/05/15 5:10 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.

Carlsbad Park Hyatt Aviara Kicks Off The Holidays In Style

Carlsbad Hyatt Aviara holiday open house in Southern California near San Diego had perfect weather for the Christmas event

The winter holiday season was on full display this past weekend at Carlsbad’s Park Hyatt Aviara Resort.  On Saturday, Aviara held its first annual Holiday Open House and welcomed everyone from the community to join in on the fun.  Attendees were greeted by carolers in Dicken’s style costume, Christmas tress all through the resort, and a winter wonderland outside.  There were beautfilly decorated gingerbread houses on display as well as a model train in the main entrance.

Park Hyatt Aviara Carlsbad Holiday Open House.  Gingerbread houses brought the Christmas feel to this wonderful winter holiday party Children were more than welcome at this celebration.  There was a station just for decorating cookies, as well as a giant movie screen on the lawn playing The Grinch.  There was even “snow” falling outside on the lawn, and a “Peppermint Princess” read stories to the children outside.

Southern California Carlasbad Park Hyatt Aviara Holiday Open house featured Christmas trees that were raffled off for charity

Inside, the hallways were filled with Christmas Trees decorated in their own themes.  Each of which were to be auctioned off  to raise money for charity.  There were also hot chocolate and hot cider stations, complete with plenty of marshmallows for guests of all ages to enjoy.  As an extra special treat, complimentary sparkling wine was available for the adults to sip on while taking in the scenery.

Beautiful Christmas trees were found all throughout Aviara Park Hyatt during their holiday open house.

We had a great time walking around the Holiday Open House at Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in Carlsbad. It was quite the change of pace from our every day and a nice way to kick off the holiday season.  We drank sparkling wine, walked out on the lawn and watched the “snow” fall on the kids playing near the fountain.  There was also a photo booth for everyone to take their pictures in, and we saw plenty of people, adults and kids alike, carrying photo strips around the rest of the night.

This was a lovely evening and we hope that this will become a Southern California tradition akin to the Carlsbad flower field in the Summer.
