An individual calling and claiming to be near George Washington High School in San Francisco this morning and saying he had a bomb put that school on lockdown Friday morning, as KRON 4 reported, and as of 12:30 p.m. the entire school was being evacuated. The call came to the school, which is located at 30th Avenue and Geary Boulevard in the Outer Richmond, at 10:45 a.m., and as a precaution, two other nearby schools were put on lockdown as well, Lafayette Elementary School and Presidio Middle School.
NBC Bay Area reports that the lockdown at the two other schools was lifted as of 1:30 p.m. after no bomb was found. The individual who made the threat has apparently been in contact with police, but has not been arrested.
Students from Washington High remain dismissed, now with a free Friday afternoon.
This follows on two other recent bomb threat incidents, one that involved a faux bomb discovered at a Salvation Army loading dock on Cesar Chavez last week, and another suspicious package earlier this week that briefly shut down part of SoMa.
All students safe. Wash HS students dismissed. Lockout at Presidio MS & Lafayette ES lifted. Regular dismissal procedures being followed.— SF public schools (@SFUnified) May 20, 2016
