Threat to LHS school safety investigated by LEPD over weekend deemed non-credible

A threat to school safety reported and investigated by law enforcement over the weekend has been deemed non-credible. As a precaution, LHS security will be heightened Monday, December 10

(Below is an advisory that was sent to student households via SchoolMessenger on Saturday, December 8, 7:30 p.m.)

Good evening, this is Mark Dennis, Public Information Officer for the Lake Elsinore Unified School District with a non-emergency school safety message for Lakeside High School, parents, students, teachers and staff.

The district and local law enforcement take student safety very seriously.

Since Friday afternoon and continuing today, in cooperation with local law enforcement, there has been an investigation into a report of a social media post about a potential threat against Lakeside High School next week.

  • This threat has been found to be non-credible by law enforcement.
  • Tonight, we want to let our Lancer students and parents know that the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department and the district have investigated this matter thoroughly in making this determination.
  • Out of an abundance of caution, however, the Lakeside High School campus will have an additional police presence on Monday, December 10.

Full school attendance next week is very important, so your child is not disadvantaged by missing instructional time or assignments.

Again, we want to reassure you that the security and safety of our campus is our number one priority.

If you have any questions about this message, please feel free to contact the school office during school hours on Monday. Thank you.
