Great Oak High School was under a shelter in place order this morning while Temecula Police investigated at the campus due to a social media post.

Great Oak High School in Temecula was subject to a "shelter in place" order Friday, Sept. 28, while the Temecula Police Department conducted an investigation. The order has since been lifted.

According to Temecula Valley Unified School District Public Information Officer Laura Boss, the investigation centered around a social media post and the order was put in place to limit students' movement around the campus while the investigation was conducted.

It was determined that no risk to students has been uncovered and the Temecula Valley Unified School District has sent out information via email to parents.

"Based on a social media post brought to our attention shortly before 10 a.m. this morning, both Great Oak administration and the School Resource Officer transitioned our staff to a shelter in place protocol during third period today," the statement read. "This procedure creates a campus environment where every student and staff member is accounted for behind a locked door. Instruction continues while the situation is being evaluated by administration and law enforcement. Upon completing our investigation and tracking the origin of the social media post, no threat to our campus was identified and the shelter in place was lifted within one class period."

The investigation is ongoing, according to Temecula Police.
