ST. HELENA -- St. Helena High School students stayed in their classrooms Friday morning as police investigated a bomb threat that was deemed to be not credible.

At about 8:50 a.m., high school staff received a phone call from someone claiming there was a bomb in a bathroom on campus.

Teachers were told to keep their students in their classrooms while police searched the campus. No suspicious items were found and at about 9:30 the school day resumed without incident. A scheduled pep rally occurred a few hours later.
