Brief Bomb Scare at AHS


Alameda Police Department (APD) place faculty and students at Alameda High School under a shelter-in-place order Tuesday, Feb. 21. The order came after the school received a bomb threat, according to Susan Davis, Alameda Unified School District senior manager of community affairs. Davis said the school received the threat via telephone. 

“Teachers kept instructing,” said Davis. “Everyone did what they were supposed to do. Everyone was safe.”

The shelter-in-place order came around 8:20 a.m. and lasted about 40 minutes. APD said the threat was not credible, according to Davis. 

The threat is now a criminal matter and APD is continuing its investigation.
