An emailed bomb threat to Edison High School on Monday prompted authorities to evacuate the Huntington Beach campus, but no explosive devices were found.

Huntington Beach Union High School District Superintendent Greg Plutko said there will be a heightened police and security presence on campus Tuesday “as a precaution.”

The email was seen just before 8:40 a.m. today, Huntington Beach police Officer Jennifer Marlatt said. Investigators were attempting to find out who sent the anonymous threat, Marlatt said.

Orange County sheriff’s bomb investigators cleared the campus of any threat by 12:45 p.m. and classes resumed, Marlatt said.

The email did not give a specific time for the bomb to go off but said said the “library and English hallway should be checked,” Marlatt said.
