SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Rancho Bernardo High School briefly went on “secure campus” Monday morning after receiving an anonymous threat.

According to the school, employees received an email threatening violence against the campus around 9:30 a.m. Monday. The threats weren’t specific to Rancho Bernardo High School, according to a letter sent to parents.

Employees notified police, who had officers on campus within a few minutes. The email prompted the school to go on “secure campus” for about 30 minutes, meaning students remained in their classrooms.
