Grossmont High School during "secure campus" mode on Feb. 17, 2015.

EL CAJON, Calif. – A security alert at Grossmont High School in El Cajon was lifted several hours after police arrived on campus, according to school district officials.

The precautionary measure, during which students were kept secured in their classrooms at 1100 Murray Drive in El Cajon, was prompted by reports that some sort of weapon might have been on the campus. Officers searched the grounds and buildings, finding nothing hazardous, Grossmont Unified High School District officials said.

By 2 p.m., students were released from the school for the day. Earlier in the day, GUHSD spokesperson said the students were safe and there was no confirmed threat to campus.
