East Avenue Middle School was evacuated Monday afternoon due to a perceived bomb threat that was found to be non-credible, according to officials from the Livermore Police Department and school district.
The incident occurred after school when most students had already left for the day, so the majority of those who evacuated were staff. LPD officials said the evacuation lasted for no more than 30 minutes before it was deemed safe to return to the campus.
The Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District expressed gratitude to LPD, who responded to the scene to investigate.
"We appreciate the swift response of LPD and our administrators who worked together to ensure students and staff were safely evacuated out of an abundance of caution and in keeping with response protocols," district officials said.
