On Nov. 21 at 10:58 a.m., Cosumnes River College students, faculty and staff were notified via alert to shelter in place. 

According to Scott Crow, American River College’s public information officer, someone made a threat against the CRC campus. 

“[The] Los Rios Police Department cannot yet verify the validity of the threat, so we have locked down the campus as a precaution and alerted students, faculty and staff,” Crow said in an email to the Current. “Nothing is more important than the safety of our campus community. We will provide an update as soon as one is available.”

At 12:46 p.m., an all clear message went out via the LRCCD alert system. 

“Police activity at Cosumnes River College has been resolved and the campus is secure,” the message said.

According to Crow, an all clear is given, but classes were moved online for the rest of the day at CRC and there are no further updates at this time.
