Elementary School Evacuated After Bomb Threat (Update)

Posted By on Mon, Feb 2, 2015 at 10:06 AM

Update 11 a.m.: All is clear at the school. Students have returned to class.

Original Story: An elementary school in Ingleside Heights was evacuated this morning after a bomb threat, the second one the school has had since October, according to authorities.

The threat came in at about 7:35 a.m. at  Jose Ortega Elementary, shortly before the school bell rang. Here is how the school explains it: 

At approximately 7:35 this morning, shortly before school began, school staff at Jose Ortega Elementary found a bomb threat note. Many families of students received notification soon enough to keep their child at home, and students who were already at school were evacuated safely to a nearby facility.

The San Francisco Police Department is working closely with school officials to investigate the situation. Families will be notified once the school is declared safe. At this time the school plans to remain open and resume classes once given clearance from SFPD.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
