In the wake of Desert Vista HS's incident last week regarding six young women displaying the word "Ni**er" on their t-shirts, neighboring Mt. Pointe HS gets phone call (after hours) "perceived as a threat". Evacuated.  Both schools are in the Ahwatukee portion of Phoenix but are in the Tempe Union High School District.

Here is the message from Mountain Pointe's Principal:

Dear Pride Families,
Late this afternoon, after students had already been released, and the majority of staff were gone, our receptionist received a phone call that she perceived as a threat.  While the threat was not specific, we were precautionary by alerting the Phoenix Police Department and District Administration. We were advised to evacuate the building for any remaining staff or students so police can conduct a safety check.
The safety and well-being of our students, staff and community are always first and foremost.  We will continue to work with the police as they guide us in through this situation. As appropriate, I will share additional information with the Mountain Pointe community as it becomes available.
