A bomb threat called into the administration office of Mira Costa High School in Manhattan Beach resulted in the cancellation of classes for the day, although a search turned up nothing dangerous, police said.

The threat to the school at 701 S. Peck Ave. was made by a male caller about 8:15 a.m., said Stephanie Martin of the Manhattan Beach Police Department.

The “non-specific” threat prompted authorities to evacuate the school and cancel classes for the day as of 9:30 a.m., Martin said.

Parents and guardians were instructed to pick up students and the entire campus was cleared within 40 minutes, Martin said.

Nine police K-9 units helped more than 80 members of law enforcement from a number of agencies in searching rooms, buildings, halls and outlying areas, but nothing dangerous was found, authorities said.

Classes will resume on Tuesday, according to Michael Matthews, superintendent of the Manhattan Beach Unified School District.
