Bomb Threat at SHHS May have been Related to Others
Posted on 02/02/2015

The bomb scare at South Hills High School last Friday, may be linked to a series of scares across the southland over the last few weeks. On Wednesday, January 14, three high schools were locked down after receiving bomb threats according to an article in the Daily Bulletin. The threats at Upland, Fontana, and Chino High Schools were all unfounded. 

Last Friday, students at South Hills High and nearby Mesa Elementary were evacuated to Barranca Elementary following a similar threat directed at the high school. The elementary students were released to their parents while the high school students were let go at approximately 1:45 p.m. South Hills High was cleared and deemed safe by the West Covina Police Department at approximately 4:00 p.m. and students were able to return to pick up their vehicles shortly thereafter. 

A special thank you goes out to the students, staff, teachers, principals, and parents for your patience and understanding during this event. A very special thank you to the West Covina Police Department who responded quickly to South Hills and cleared the school.
