The potential threat was reported to school officials shortly before 9 a.m. and the campus at 15235 E. Los Robles Avenue was immediately locked down.

Hacienda-La Puente Unified school police combed the campus aided by sheriff's deputies.

Students were directed to "shelter in place" in their classrooms.
