SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – Classes at Hoover High School went on as normal Thursday after a threat of violence was written on a wall of a campus bathroom.

School officials said the threatening message was discovered Wednesday. Concerned parents said it warned students not to come to school Friday.

Parents and students were informed of the threat overnight by Hoover High Principal Jason Babineau.

Babineau sent the following letters to students’ families:

Dear Hoover High School Families,

Here at Hoover, we believe in communicating openly with our parents, students and staff about matters that affect our campus. As such, I wanted to make you aware that earlier today a student discovered a threatening comment and hateful messages written on a restroom wall. School Police are investigating, and at this time, they believe the threat to be unsubstantiated.

Thank you for your vigilance with our “See Something, Say Something” campaign. The safety and security of students is our top priority at Hoover. Please take this opportunity to talk to your students about the severity and consequences of making threatening comments.
