A Pleasant Hill middle school was briefly locked down this morning after someone called in a threat to the school, according to a Pleasant Hill police sergeant. Around 10 a.m. someone called Sequoia Middle School, located at 265 Boyd Road, and said, “You’re next,” according to Sgt. Tim Frank. Police immediately arrived and searched the school for suspicious objects and activity.
The campus was given the all-clear by 10:40 a.m., Frank said. Faculty and staff were alerted about the threat and no one was able to leave the campus, however classes were not interrupted, Frank said. Frank said the school and police exercised an “abundance of caution” following Friday’s elementary school shooting rampage in Connecticut and other recent threats in Pleasant Hill.
Other incidents in the past few weeks include a bomb threat at Pleasant Hill Elementary School last week and juveniles blowing up a mailbox with a homemade bomb a few days before that. Frank said police are investigating who called the school.
