All LAUSD schools closed by 'credible threat' of violence


Officials closed all Los Angeles Unified School District campuses Tuesday morning after receiving a “credible threat” of violence involving backpacks and packages left at campuses.

Authorities said they plan a search operation of all the LAUSD’s more than 900 schools. The nation’s second-largest school district has more than 700,000 students.


I work in Los Angeles and thankfully my children don’t attend LAUSD but it is still very scary we are not that far from a “LAUSD” school. I wanted to go back and get them . As I was driving the thought of " you need to say the Rosaryfor peace" . what is wrong with people ? makes me sad and angry!.


Now the copy cats are starting up - all to tack a couple extra days on winter break. I’m giving exams this week. :shrug:
