As you may have heard, the Los Angeles Unified School District announced that all of its schools would be closed Tuesday, Dec. 15 due to a threat of violence sent electronically to district officials.
The decision to cancel classes in Los Angeles was taken “in an abundance of caution” based on a specific threat reported within that district. The Orange County Department of Education has not been notified of any similar reports involving Orange County schools.
OCDE will, however, continue to work closely with law enforcement officials and maintain ongoing communications. Above all, the safety of students and staff remains our highest priority.
