Lockdown lifted at La Jolla High School following threat Thursday morning

Several San Diego high schools received threats today (Thursday, Sept. 17) — of either a suspicious device or shooter on campus — and were placed on lockdown, including La Jolla High School. Thus far, no dangerous devices or shooters have been found.

Ursula Kroemer, San Diego Unified School District Chief Public Information Offer, confirmed that La Jolla High School had been on lockdown during the first part of the day, but the lockdown was lifted by the early afternoon.

Kroemer said every school that received a threat was put on lockdown, “we take this very seriously.” Threats were made to 10 schools in the San Diego Unified School District and one in the Sweetwater Union School District.
