High school in Martinez receives anonymous threat

A high school in Martinez is taking no chances today. After getting an anonymous, non-specific emailed threat, school officials have beefed up security including extra police patrols.

There will be police at Alhambra High School on campus because of the threat. A blood drive that had been scheduled for today has been postponed and the JV and varsity football teams will board their buses to their away games tonight under police guard.

Wednesday an email was sent to a random employee at the district office. The email contained an unspecified threat against the school. It was something to the effect of something bad could happen.

Police are saying nothing has given credibility to the threat. Parents have been notified and will have the option to keep their kids home today.

The principal told the Contra Costa Times that he would send his own child to school today, but he fully understands if there is going to be low attendance.
