OCEANSIDE, Calif. – An elementary school in North County was on a “modified” locked down Thursday morning after receiving a threatening call, officials confirmed.
An anonymous threat was received overnight which caused officials to issue a modified lock down at Laurel Elementary School at 1410 Laurel Street in Oceanside, according to Steve Lombard, Director of Communications for the Oceanside Unified School District.
Lombard said the modified lock down meant kids were directed to classrooms instead of playing on the field before school. Kids arriving for breakfast were sent to eat in their classrooms.
Oceanside police were still on the school property as classes began at 8:15 a.m. Nothing had been found as of noon. Class resumed for the duration of the school day.
Several parents lined up outside the school to take their children home. A couple parents told Fox 5 school officials did not notify them until their the school day was over.
