Report of fired teacher at Huntington Beach High, sparking shelter in place order, unfounded

HUNTINGTON BEACH – A report of a fired teacher at Huntington Beach High School on Tuesday that prompted students and staff to shelter in place is unfounded, according to police.

Students were ordered to remain in classrooms while police searched for the former teacher who a staff member reported was on campus Tuesday morning without permission, said Officer Jennifer Marlatt, a spokeswoman for the Huntington Beach Police Department.

The shelter in place order, which required students to remain in classrooms, was lifted around noon. Students were then allowed to resume their normal classroom schedules, Marlatt said.

A man, who lost his teaching position within the last year, was initially reported to have been seen near some classrooms around 8:30 a.m. by a school staff member, said Marlatt.

The staff member was apparently the only person to see the man on campus.

“She (the staff member) believed it was him,” Marlatt said.

The former teacher is not allowed to be on campus without checking in with the school’s administration. Marlatt wouldn’t comment on the man’s identity or why he had been fired.

However, the claim that the former teacher was on campus turned out to be false, Marlatt said.

“Our detectives were able to contact that person and confirm he was at work when we got the call and his place of employment in another city verified he was at work this morning during the time of this call,” she said.

Police searched the campus and nearby areas for the man spotted by the staff member but didn’t find anyone.

Alyssa Griffiths, spokeswoman for the Huntington Beach Union High School District, acknowledged Tuesday afternoon via Facebook the man was not found on campus, but did not offer further comment about the shelter in place order.

“Thank you also to our students and staff for your patience, as we know it is important to constantly keep school safety at the forefront of our minds,” she said.
