EDSO deputies are currently at Marina Village Middle School in El Dorado Hills, investigating vague threats. At this time, deputies have not found any reason to believe the credibility of the threats. The school has placed itself on lockdown and deputies will remain on campus as a precaution until the investigation is complete.

We understand the apprehension of leaving your child being at school during a lockdown with threats. We ask that parents stay out of the area and allow us to complete the investigation. 

The safety of the students is our top priority.
