SANTEE, Calif. (KGTV) — San Diego Sheriff's deputies are investigating a possible threat made against West Hills High School late Monday.

In a letter to parents, West Hills Principal Robin Ballarin said staff was made aware of the threat Monday concerning a student remark that referenced a possible act of violence.

The 15-year-old student has been identified, school officials say.

No weapon or written threats were found in connection with the student, deputies said.

The remark was reportedly made during class at 10:30 a.m., according to deputies, who called the comment "generic." Law enforcement and school officials were notified at 4:45 p.m.

Ballarin said the threat was dealt with immediately by law enforcement and that there was no concern at this time.

"We want to assure all in our school community of our unwavering commitment to safety and our immediate, thorough, and proactive response," Ballarin's letter read.

If anyone has any public safety concerns, they can report a crime or issue to SDSO at 858-565-5200.
