Dos Pueblo High School placed on temporary lockout in Santa Barbara, lockout has lifted

Dos Pueblo High School was placed on a temporary lockout in Santa Barbara on Friday.

Santa Barbara Unified School District received an anonymous report that active shooters would come onto the campus at 1:20 p.m.

The lockout was initiated immediately at Dos Pueblo High School.

Dos Pueblos High School officials and Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office conducted a thorough investigation.

The investigation resulted in the admission by students that it was a hoax.

The lockout was lifted by 1:10 p.m.

Lockout is different from lockdown. In a lockout situation, students are recovered from outside of the building and the school secures a perimeter and locks all outside doors. In a lockdown, lights are turned off, classroom doors are locked, and students are told to remain quiet. A lockout typically happens when there is criminal activity near a school, but not on campus.
