Update: Curtis Creek No Longer On Lockdown

Sponsored by:

Update at 2:45 p.m.:  Curtis Creek Elementary School is no longer on lockdown after a suspicious person was reported on campus. The school reported that a student made a false report and is being dealt with, and all classes resumed after Tuolumne County Sheriff’s deputies made a sweep of the campus.

Original post at 1:40 p.m.: Sonora, CA —  Curtis Creek Elementary School is on lockdown after a suspicious person was reported on campus.

Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Ashley Boujikian tells Clarke Broadcasting that deputies remain at the school and have confirmed there is no threat to the students or staff on campus following a false report made by a student.

The initial report came into sheriff’s dispatch around 12:30 p.m. While deputies were responding to the school on Standard Road, staff determined it had been a false report made by a student. To ensure the campus was secure and assist school administrators, deputies continued to respond.

“The safety of our schools and our children will always be a top priority for our sheriff’s office, and we will always take reports of possible threats to our schools seriously,” stated Boujikian.

School administrators report that the student who made the false report is being dealt with appropriately and that classes will resume in this email to parents:
