A Calabasas school received a threatening phone call Monday leading to a brief evacuation.

Viewpoint School (map) contacted the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and planned to evacuate, a desk officer with the Malibu/Lost Hills station said around 2 p.m.

A message on the school’s website 15 minutes later said it was a prank call and parents should not pick up their children.

“Everyone is safe on campus. … Please be assured your children safe,” according to the message.

The school has 1,200 students, grades kindergarten through 12th.
