Steve Radford, the school’s assistant principal, confirmed that Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies conducted a search, but did not find anything threatening on campus.

“We feel at this time that it was a hoax,” Radford said Friday afternoon.

Deputies at the Palmdale sheriff’s station received a report about 8:30 a.m. of a bomb threat at the campus, 2137 E. Avenue R.

Radford said the school was evacuated and students were moved to a safe location off the premises “as a precaution” while deputies conducted an investigation.

The incident was resolved by about 10.30 a.m, he said.
