SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - San Luis High School Administrators notified the San Luis Obispo Police Department about a message written inside one of their restrooms.

The message was located on Thursday, November 21 and was originally thought to be vandalism only.

Once officials analyzed the writing, it was determined that the small writing said “school shooter”. The San Luis Obispo High School staff and parents of the students have been notified of this incident by the school’s administration.

The school district sent out the following message to the parents of San Luis Obispo High School:

SLOHS Families and Staff, This notice is to provide you with an update on the vandalism incident which occurred in the restrooms yesterday, November 21, 2019. After further investigation, we discovered previously unidentified text in smaller writing which said “school shooter". We continue to consider this a serious incident and will continue to follow up with SLOPD to ensure student safety and a full and thorough investigation. We had a similar situation at Laguna Middle School that was resolved this week. Please let us know if you have any information regarding this incident.

Currently, the school district is on a holiday break until December 2, 2019, mitigating a current threat to the school during the holiday break.

The San Luis Obispo Police Department’s School Resource Officer and Detectives are currently conducting an investigation to determine who is responsible for writing the message.

While the intent of the message is not known, the police department's main concern is the safety of the San Luis Obispo High School students, staff and guests who attend the school.

Procedures have been put in place to increase public safety, and that of SLO High School until this incident is resolved.

If you have any information about this incident please call the San Luis Obispo Police department at 805-781-7312. To remain anonymous, you can also notify Crime Stoppers at 805-549-7867
