Pico Rivera Middle School and Elementary School Closed Due to Threat

 PICO RIVERA (CNS) - An unspecified threat against a middle school in
Pico Rivera today prompted officials to close the campus, along with a nearby
elementary school, while an investigation was conducted.
   The threat was made by a male who telephoned Rivera Middle School, 7200
Citronell Ave., about 6 a.m. before school opened, said Sgt. Marco Soto of the
sheriff's Pico Rivera Station. That school and adjacent Rivera Elementary  were
closed while an investigation was conducted, he said.
