Another Day, Another Threat, Another High School Closure

Sunny Hills High School in Fullerton was shut down Wednesday in response to a note taped to a door.

Because of the times, Fullerton Joint Union High School District thought it best to shut down the school as a precaution. The day before, Los Angeles Unified shut down all of its 900 schools because of a bomb threat that was emailed to a board member. And the week before a Manhattan Beach school shut down their campus several times for similar reasons.

Fullerton police were notified Wednesday morning about the note. Police Lt. Alex Bastreri said that it was “not a bomb threat and no nexus to terrorism.”

The campus has 28 cameras and the administration now “has some leads,” according to Sunny Hills Principal Allen Whitten.

Final exams were scheduled this week, so many students believe that this was a hoax by another student to avoid having to take an exam.
