An anonymous bomb threat call prompted Pine Valley Middle School to lockdown Thursday at 1:10 p.m. 

San Ramon Police arrived on the scene and secured the school for 25 minutes before declaring the call a "hoax."

The caller, described as a "juvenile," said a student on campus had explosive devices and or weapons, said San Ramon Valley District spokesman Terry Koehne.

After the call, the school immediately contacted the police department and secured students in lockdown.

To his knowledge, Koehne said there haven't been any arrests made.

Patch will update this story as more details develop.

Why would they lock kids inside a school that could have a bomb inside the school? Shouldn't they evacuate the kids?
