EL CAJON (KUSI) — Grossmont High School was on lockdown due to police activity Thursday after a threat was made to the campus, according to Grossmont Union High School District officials.

The three-hour Safe Campus order was lifted around 12 p.m. after El Cajon Police were unable to substantiate any threat to students.

A Secure Campus was put in place and students were safe in locked classrooms.

Police combed the 66-acre campus and searched about 20 building as they investigated the possible threat for three hours. Canine searches were also done with the assistance from U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents.

Students were allowed to use the restroom as needed. Snacks and water were also available in the classrooms.

The nature of the police activity in the area wasn't immediately known.
