After searching the school, officers said that it appears the report was a hoax. Campbell police are calling the report a “swatting” incident. Swatting is when a false report is made intended to draw a response from the SWAT team.
Rosemary Elementary School is at 401 W. Hamiliton Avenue in Campbell, just east of San Tomas Expressway.
