A Los Angeles Police Department bomb squad responded and students were temporarily moved to Temescal Park around 9:30 a.m., Jack Richter, LAPD Public Information Officer, told The Hollywood Reporter. The school was determined to be safe by 11:30 a.m. and students returned to the campus.

"There was a threat made on social media." LAPD Sgt. Albert Gonzales said. Richter said the source of the threat is being investigated.

Temescal Canyon was closed between Pacific Coast Highway and Sunset Boulevard while the bomb squad responded.
