FULLERTON (CBSLA.com) — Classes were canceled Wednesday at Sunny Hills High School in Fullerton because of a “perceived student threat,” but school will reopen Thursday.

The campus, 1801 Warburton Way, was shut down after staff found a note detailing a threat about a specific unnamed student on a door, Fullerton police said.

“Sunny Hills High School experienced a perceived student threat on the safety to the students and staff,” the district said in a statement on its website. “Out of an abundance of caution, the principal and superintendent made the decision to close Sunny Hills High School for the day.”

“It’s not terrorist-related or something along those lines at all,” Fullerton police Lt. Andrew Goodrich said.

Police officers helped with traffic as parents picked up their children. As of noon, nothing on campus was found to lend credibility to the threat, Goodrich said.

The closure comes just a day after the Los Angeles Unified School District’s decision to shut down more than 900 campuses in response to an emailed threat that was later determined to be a hoax.
