Threat Forces Brief Lockdown Of Burlingame High School
BURLINGAME (CBS SF) – Burlingame High School was briefly locked down Friday afternoon after a threatening e-mail was sent to the school’s office, a school district official said.
The school, located at 1 Mangini Way in Burlingame, was locked down shortly after 2 p.m. and police responded to the campus, according to Barbara Tufo, an administrative assistant with the San Mateo Union High School District.
The lockdown was lifted shortly after 2:30 p.m. and parents are now permitted to pick up their students at the school, Tufo said.
Parents are encouraged to pick up the students at the northwest entrance of the school’s football field, she said.
An automated call went out to parents notifying them of the incident, Tufo said.
Tufo did not have information on what prompted the lifting of the lockdown.
