Several students were questioned and one was detained after a school lockdown at Monte Vista High School, according to school district officials.
The Spring Valley school on Sweetwater Springs Blvd. was placed on lockdown at 9.30 a.m. Wednesday after a substitute teacher overheard a group of students talking about a weapon in a bush, said Grossmont Union High School District spokesperson Katherine Martin.
The school’s lockdown status was downgraded to a “secure campus” at 10.06 a.m., said Martin
The school called the San Diego County Sheriff’s Dept., which did a thorough search of the school.
Students were released and returned to their third period classes and 11 a.m., Martin said.
