Threatening graffiti on bathroom wall sends school into lockdown

2 California schools could not participate in National Walkout Day because they were on lockdown

A school in California was put on lockdown Wednesday after a shooting threat.

The lockdown at Atlantic City High School started as the clock closed in on 10 a.m., minutes before students across the state walked out of schools to protest gun violence.

KTVU further reports that although many students heard rumors of guns being found in the school, police did not recover any weapons in their inspections of the campus.

No weapons were discovered, and students and staff were safely dismissed at their regularly scheduled time.

All other schools in the San Leandro Unified School District are open, police said.

"However this message was written with the intended violence to take place tomorrow. We chose to work with the school and clear the grounds today - just as a precaution", said Lt. Benabou. The school district says all students and staff are safe.

After the announcement that the lockdown had been lifted at about 11:30 am, classes resumed but parents remained to take their children home.

Righetti High students held a National Student Walkout rally in the campus amphitheater during the Noon lunch hour to commemorate the victims of the school shootings in Florida one month ago. They included over two dozen at Lindenhurst High School on NY state's Long Island, who were at first suspended, then had their punishment reduced to detentions, according to a senior and the school superintendent.
