Colfax High School lockdown lifted | Update

Parents can now safely pick up their student as Colfax Elementary pick-up will resume as usual, according to the Placer County Sheriff's Office.

COLFAX, Calif. — The lockdown at Colfax High has been lifted, according to the Placer County Sheriff's Office.

Parents can now safely pick up their student from the high school. Colfax Elementary pick-up will also resume as usual. 

After-school programs will not be held on campus but the learning center/library will be open to students who have not yet arranged a ride. 

The Placer County Sheriff's Office said their deputies responded to a report of an unauthorized male juvenile on campus who potentially posed a security threat. Deputies found the juvenile in the Auburn area. The investigation is ongoing.

According to Placer Union High School District, there was no immediate threat to students or staff. 

School officials said the person was not a Colfax student.

Original story: Colfax High School is on lockdown Tuesday after a report that a person was on campus, according to the Placer Union High School District.

The Placer County Sheriff's Office is investigating the reports and is asking people to stay out of the area.

The school district said that the sheriff's office does not expect the lockdown will be lifted by the minimum day release time of 12:58 p.m. People are asked not to go to the campus. People trying to pick up their kids can go to the Sierra Vista Community Center where deputies will be able to give updates and provide information.

Once the sheriff's office lifts the lockdown, students will be able to drive home and people will be able to pick up their students. Students will need to wait in the Learning Commons or the Cafe until they can be picked up.  

Sports games and practices have been canceled for today, the district said.

Once law enforcement clears the campus, the lockdown can be lifted. The district said updates will be sent to families about every 30 minutes until the lockdown ends.
