RAMONA, Calif. (KGTV) — Ramona Unified School District is alerting parents of what they called a "suspicious" incident at a local elementary school Friday.

In a letter home to families, Barnett Elementary School Principal Linda Marthis said a kindergarten student reported the incident took place at the campus' upper playground in front of the school.

Marthis did not elaborate on the incident. San Diego Sheriff's deputies arrived and were unable to find evidence to support the student's claims.

Out of an abundance of caution, supervisory staff will be "heightened" while students are on the playground and all K classes would have recess on the kindergarten.
