UPDATE: Social Media Threat Led to Acalanes High Lockdown

UPDATED: Friday, June 6, 11:45 a.m.

Acalanes High School in Lafayette is currently on lockdown because of threats posted to social media, officials said.

Police said students are safe, and there is no immediate threat at the high school.

Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office spokesman Jimmy Lee said the school went on lockdown after school officials became aware of a threat on social media.

Lee said officers are trying to figure out if the threat is legitimate and no arrests have been made.

Police are at the school and investigating the situation.

Some area parents report they are communicating with their children via cell texts.

Other parents, within the past 20 to 30 minutes, shared that their kids have said things are "all clear" and everything is OK. 

Police have not issued any statements since the initial one this morning.
