Bomb threat prompts evacuation of SLO High School

September 10, 2021


San Luis Obispo High School was evacuated early Friday afternoon after the SLO Police Department received a telephoned bomb threat.

Shortly after 1 p.m., the caller told police a bomb would go off at the school in five minutes. After students were evacuated, officers searched the campus.

The SLO County Sheriff’s Office provided a bomb sniffing dog to help with the search.

After about an hour, officers determined there was not a credible threat and students returned to their classes.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Probably phoned in by the teachers union.


The pranksters know they can get a huge over-action by authorities and this makes it all the more attractive.


Ahh, the “get out of the first exam of the school year” bomb threat. An annual rite carried out by hundreds of ill prepared students and various young scallywags.


Ridiculous. Sounds like someone didn’t want a test that they were expecting.
