SAN DIEGO -- No San Diego Unified School District campuses were closed Tuesday as a reported bomb threat prompted authorities to shut down all Los Angeles Unified School District schools -- more than 900 campuses – but police will make extra patrols as a precaution.
No threats had been made to San Diego schools, but city and district police officers were summoned to patrol local schools as a precaution, district officials said via Twitter. The announcement came after the LAUSD ordered all its campuses shut down and searched in response to an electronic threat.
School officials told parents to keep their kids home and retrieve those already at school, officials said. Los Angeles Unified, the nation's second largest district, serves more than 700,000 students.
