BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — A “potential threat” to Independence High School on Thursday was determined to be non-credible, school administrators said.
Independence High School Principal Guillermo Alvarado sent a message to parents and guardians saying KHSD, Bakersfield police and administrators investigated the threat and determined it was not credible.
