Mass phishing email prompted police response to campuses Friday

On Friday morning, a mass phishing email was sent regarding a bomb threat targeting two Livermore private schools. As a precaution, the schools took action and the police department assisted, Livermore police said.

The threat was ultimately deemed non-credible.

The police department confirmed that Valley Montessori School was one of the campuses involved as police were spotted on the scene Friday. Parents on social media named Our Savior Lutheran School as the other campus to receive the email threat but LPD officials declined to confirm.

Some parents also believed St. Michael School was involved, however, LPD clarified that the school did not receive the email but the principal notified parents that it had been sent to other campuses and out of an abundance of caution, St. Michael had a police officer do a full perimeter check of the school and found no threat.

Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District officials said that none of the city's public schools had received the most recent email. However, in a separate incident earlier this month, East Avenue Middle School was evacuated after hours due to a purported bomb threat that was also found to be non-credible.
