APPLE VALLEY, Calif.— Granite Hills High School in Apple Valley was placed on a precautionary lockdown Friday afternoon.
It happened on October 5, 2018, at about 1:50 pm, as students were preparing to end the school day.
Officials said the lockdown was ordered following the report of a student with a gun on a school bus near the campus.
“The information was immediately reported to law enforcement and all protocols were followed to ensure the safety of all students. Law enforcement responded to the scene and the report was unfounded,” stated Apple Valley Unified School District Public Information Officer Kristin Hernandez.
The lockdown was lifted as soon as law enforcement deemed it safe to do so.
“As always, if you see something say something,” Deputy Superintendent Trenae Nelson said. “We would like to thank our students and staff for their vigilance and our families for their patience as we responded to this report during dismissal today. The safety of our students and staff is always our utmost priority.”
