A South Coast university is holding virtual classes Monday as the result of a threat over the holiday weekend. Cal Lutheran in Thousand Oaks has cancelled many of its in-person events, and most university employees are working remotely.

On Saturday, someone found a note at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum threatening school shootings at four Southern California college campuses. LAPD detectives say someone found the handwritten note at the stadium, which was hosting the USC-Notre Dame football game.

Nothing happened Sunday, but Cal Lutheran officials say they decided to shut down the campus Monday to most regular activities as a precaution. Classes are all virtual, and the university’s library, fitness center, and student union are closed.
