3 bomb threats called into KHSD schools Wednesday, all deemed not credible

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Three separate bomb threats, all deemed not credible, to Kern High School District schools were called into the Kern County Sheriff's Office Wednesday afternoon.

According to Kern County Sheriff's Office officials, dispatchers received a call from an untraceable cell phone at 12:03 p.m. threatening Mira Monte, Highland and East High Schools with a bomb.

The Bakersfield Police Department and Kern County Sheriff's Office investigated and determined that all threats to the schools were not credible. Students remained in class Wednesday afternoon.

Lisa Krch with the Kern High School District said extra security will be present at all three schools Thursday.

All three schools had students walk out of classes last week and Tuesday in protest of the Trump Administration's decision to end the DACA program. Krch said she was unaware of any link between the events.
