Manhattan Beach High School Evacuated Due to Bomb Threat
Here’s how you can pick up your student from Mira Costa High School
Students and staff at Mira Costa High School have been evacuated due to a bomb threat, police said this morning. As a result, school has been closed for the day and parents are being asked to pick up their children.
Officer Stephanie Martin of the Manhattan Beach Police Department says students may be picked up at the ramp leading off campus on Meadows Avenue. Drivers must access Meadows Avenue from Second Street. They then will be asked to exit on Artesia Boulevard after picking up their student(s), she told InsideMB.net.
The threat reportedly was received via phone to the MCHS administration around 8 a.m., Martin said. It contained no specific information.
“We treat all threats very seriously and credibly,” Martin told InsideMB.net.
She said nothing in the threat led officials to believe any other school or surrounding residential area was in jeopardy, however, police continue to investigate.
