San Clemente High in Class Today After Bomb Scare (Video)

School is back back in session today at San Clemente High School, after class was canceled yesterday and the students evacuated due to a bomb threat from a Camp Pendleton Navy medic. SCHS Principal George Duarte posted a message on his school's website telling parents:

First, I want to assure you that the entire campus has been checked and given the all clear by law enforcement... Second, I want to commend the students and staff for their calmness and responsibility.

Meanwhile, the Navy corpsman who prompted the bomb scare is custody this morning and being questioned by military police. As Home Post reported yesterday, 22-year-old Daniel Morgan turned himself in at a base hospital after a daylong manhunt.

Wednesday's chaos began when Morgan failed to report for duty after a four-day leave, according to the Los Angeles Times. That's when base officials searched Morgan's barracks and found a note claiming he'd placed explosives at San Clemente High School. School officials then evacuated students - first to the outdoor football stadium, and then to the gym.
