CARLSBAD — Police today will be patrolling the area of a Carlsbad high school after a parent reported a threat made to the school.

Around 2 p.m. Thursday, a parent reported to the San Dieguito Union High School District that their student found “threatening language targeted toward our school community” written on a girls bathroom wall at La Costa Canyon High School, the Times of San Diego reported. Carlsbad Police confirmed a threat was made and that officers would patrol the area.

Superintendent Cheryl James-Ward issued a statement about the incident, per the Times of San Diego:

“Their student found threatening language targeted toward our school community written on the wall in the 700s [building] girls bathroom,” Cheryl James-Ward said. “Given the nature of the message, we immediately contacted the Carlsbad Police Department for support.”

Students of the school at 1 Maverick Way should plan to sign on to their virtual classrooms today.
