EL CENTRO -- On just its third day of the new academic year, Central Union High School absorbed what is becoming an all-too-common disruption–a threat authorities ultimately deemed “not credible.”

A school staff member contacted city police shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday to report someone left an anonymous bomb threat to the school on another staff member’s office voicemail, police dispatcher’s logs state.
