The school is giving the students a lot of conversation fodder at the local water cooler but a nightmare to the parents.
A local newspaper – Sign on San Diego – is reporting that for the second day of their classes, students at the year-round Otay Ranch High School were in lockdown for an hour on Tuesday after police said there was a â€œdangerous suspectâ€ in the area.
The lockdown started about 2:30 p.m. and ended about 3:30 p.m. Swarms of police officers circled the campus with pistols and shotguns drawn as helicopters flew overhead.
About 2,400 students were in the school on Olympic Parkway at the time, just about to let out for the day, said Lillian Leopold, spokeswoman for Sweetwater Union High School District.
I didn’t hear of any suspect being taken in by the police for questioning or getting caught at the location.
If you are from that area or you go to school there, let us know what was it like.
