Students released after bomb threat Marin Co. high school

LARKSPUR (KRON) — A Marin County high school was on lock-down Tuesday morning due to a bomb threat, according to Tamalpais Union High School District.

Around 9:00 a.m. Redwood High School in Larkspur began evacuating to the football field, officials said.

Central Marin Police Chief Mike Norton says the decision was made after the school received an anonymous tip of a bomb threat.

At 10:00 a.m. the high school tweeted that everyone is “calmly leaving building to assemble in safe place,” and that it is okay to contact your student.

It took almost three hours to safely evacuate all 2,000 students.

Just after 11:30 a.m. students were being released to the baseball field, according to Central Marin Police,

At this time, the school texted parents to check their e-mails for pick-up instructions.

Police are still investigating to determine the credibility of the threat, and conducting a floor-by-floor search for any evidence.

Bomb dogs and other outside resources are assisting in the investigation, Chief Norton said.
