Santa Clara County sheriff’s deputies are at a high school in Cupertino this morning investigating a bomb threat at the school that originated from a San Jose high school, a sheriff’s lieutenant said. Santa Clara County authorities received a report from San Jose police at 6:39 a.m. of a possible bomb threat at Monta Vista High School, Lt. Rick Sung said.

Police reported a vandalism incident at Lynbrook High School, located at 1280 Johnson Ave. in San Jose, where graffiti there referenced the bomb threat at Monta Vista High, Sung said. A specific male teacher, whose name hasn’t been released, was referenced in the threat, he said. Monta Vista High, located at 21840 McClellan Road, canceled classes for the day and is closed until further notice because of the investigation, according to Judy Gillani, executive assistant to the Fremont Union High School District’s deputy superintendent.

Because of its close proximity to Monta Vista High, Lincoln Elementary School, at 21710 McClellan Road, is also closed, Sung said. As of 9 a.m., bomb-detection dogs were performing a search through the Monta Vista campus for any possible explosive device, the lieutenant said.

The sweep through the school is expected to last until noon, Sung said. Nothing had been found as of 9 a.m., he said. All other Cupertino schools are conducting business as usual after scans of the campuses revealed no suspicious packages or devices, Sung said. No threat was made toward Lynbrook High School.
