SISKIYOU COUNTY, Calif. -- Several schools are on lock down after a bomb threat against several California school districts.

The Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office confirmed to NewsWatch 12 that both the Tulelake Basin Joint Unified School District and the Scott Valley Unified School District will be on lock down indefinitely.

The Sheriff's Office said it is on scene, and doing walk-throughs of each school in the county.

This is a developing story.

NewsWatch12 received this statement from the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office: 

"Numerous schools in the Scott Valley and Tulelake districts have received an email containing a bomb threat. The Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) has learned other schools state-wide have also received a similar email.

Although there is NO imminent, credible threat, the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office takes all threats seriously and has dispatched deputies to each school in these areas as well as security checks of all other schools.

Tuklelake and Scott Valley schools have been placed on lockdown per school policy. Each school will be following lockdown procedure and making effort to contact parents and guardians.

Again, we want to reiterate, there is NO imminent, credible threat at this time; however, we take every threat seriously and have dispatched law enforcement personnel to the schools.

We are currently investigating this matter, and more information will be provided as it develops."
