UPDATE: Crescenta Valley High School has been cleared. No suspects, weapons, or devices were located on the premises. All students and staff have been released.

Sheriff’s deputies conducted a thorough search of the Crescenta Valley HS campus and confirmed that there is no danger of a suspicious person. As an added precaution, they are conducting a second search to ensure no suspicious packages have been left on the campus. Students at CV are being released class by class and escorted to a nearby church where they will be released to walk home or be picked up by their families. Students who need to wait for a ride home will wait at the church with CV staff and sheriff’s deputies. Students at La Crescenta continue to shelter in place. La Crescenta TK and kindergarten students were released earlier today on their regular schedule.

Crescenta Valley Station, in conjunction with Crescenta Valley High School, is currently evacuating students to Christ Armenian Church [Highlands Church]. The address is 4441 La Crescenta Ave., La Crescenta, Ca, 91214.

Parents of students may reunite at that location.

This evacuation is precautionary in nature. This was triggered when an unauthorized person failed to check in on campus with a large duffel bag. Numerous law enforcement resources are on-scene to keep the community safe.

There have been no threats made, the shelter-in-place is out of an abundance of caution because they take the safety of the students very seriously, according to GUSD Superintendent Dr. Vivian Ekchian.
