MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Officials have evacuated a Southern California high school after receiving an anonymous bomb threat.

Spokeswoman Carolyn Seaton with the Manhattan Beach Unified School District says the caller contacted Mira Costa High School shortly after 8 a.m. Monday and stated there was a bomb on campus.

Seaton characterized the threat as “very vague” and said the campus was being evacuated out of an abundance of caution.

Manhattan Beach police officers were doing a room-by-room search of the campus, a process expected to take up to five hours.

All classes have been canceled as the search is conducted.

Seaton says the superintendent’s office has communicated with all parents and guardians and is supervising all students not immediately able to go home.
