SLO High School

By KAREN VELIE

San Luis Obispo High School was evacuated early Friday afternoon after the SLO Police Department received a telephoned bomb threat.

Shortly after 1 p.m., the caller told police a bomb would go off at the school in five minutes. After students were evacuated, officers searched the campus.

The SLO County Sheriff’s Office provided a bomb sniffing dog to help with the search.

After about an hour, officers determined there was not a credible threat and students returned to their classes.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
