SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - North Cow Creek School went on a soft lockdown on Thursday, due to a threatening note left inside the boy's bathroom.

North Cow Creek posted a note on their website to update families regarding the incident.

The threatening note, which was reported by a student on Monday, stated that the school would be "shot up on Dec. 5." The school reviewed surveillance footage and determined that no unfamiliar person entered the bathroom, according to the school.

Throughout the school's investigation, they said they believe this was a prank. The student who wrote the note has not yet been identified.

The Shasta County Sheriff's Deputies said only half of the students showed up to school on Thursday. A school resource officer and sheriff's deputy have remained on-site.

The school said they will continue to work with the Sheriff's department to investigate this incident and to ensure the students are safe.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
