Bomb Threat Shuts Down Central Coast School

Posted on Monday, February 22, 2016 5:28pm

Authorities took a bomb threat at a Central Coast school seriously enough that it was evacuated today.

Someone called Templeton High School just before noon, making a threat against the school.

Officials decided to take the precaution of evacuating the campus.  Students were released to their parents beginning at around 1:30 p.m.

The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Department swept the school grounds with the help of a bomb sniffing K-9.  The campus was declared clear at around 4 p.m., with nothing suspicious found.

The investigation into who made the threat is continuing.
