Lucia Mar Unified School District ensures student safety after an apparent threat was made

The Lucia Mar Unified School District is responding to an apparent threat against a student at Arroyo Grande High School.

About a week ago, one student sent a Facebook message to a classmate urging them not to come to school on March 7th because something was going to happen.

The school district followed its protocol, which included contacting the Arroyo Grande Police Department.

The police and district investigated and discovered the student did not pose a direct threat to students. They said there was no specific mention of weapons or violent attacks on other students. The teen who sent the original message has been suspended.

The Lucia Mar Unified School District wants parents to know there is no direct threat to the campus. A statement released by the district stated, "Upon hearing of the alleged threat, we had our team do a thorough assessment. Part of that assessment included involving Arroyo Grande PD. Appropriate precautions have been taken and students and parents can be assured that the campus is a safe environment."

District administrators insist they always take their students' safety seriously and feel the proper protocols are in place and the proper steps have been taken.

The Arroyo Grande Police Department plans to have officers on campus Thursday as a precautionary measure.
