Students at Vail Ranch Middle School were ordered to shelter in place due to police activity in the area for a short time Monday, Dec. 11. The order was quickly lifted, according to Temecula Valley Unified School District Public Information Officer, Laura Boss.
Boss, along with TVUSD, released a statement to parents saying that Temecula Police Department put Vail Ranch Middle School students under the shelter in place status as a precaution.
“All is fine and the request has been lifted,” Boss wrote in the release, adding that the district does not know the specifics for the request. “Police will have to share that information as soon as they conclude their activities.”
According to Temecula Police Captian Lisa McConnell, the incident was not a hostage situation as some were reporting on social media.
“We had a false report of a residential burglary,” McConnell posted on Facebook. “Units responded and determined a crime had not occurred.”
