Desert Mirage High School was put on lockdown Friday morning due to police activity. The scene has since been cleared.
According to Coachella Valley Unified School District, the school was put on lockdown shortly before 7 a.m. because of a suspicious person walking off campus. The lockdown was out of “an abundance of caution.”
Parents tell NBC Palm Springs they were told students were to return home when they arrived for school drop off. The scene was cleared shortly after, before a second lockdown was put into place. That was cleared later in the morning.
