Bay Area

SAN RAMON (KRON) — The principal at California High School in San Ramon provided an update Thursday afternoon as the school grapples with several threats of violence targeting the campus. 

Only 20 percent of students attended class on Thursday while San Ramon Police and FBI were on campus ensuring students’ and teachers’ safety.

In a letter to parents Thursday, the principal said, “We understand and respect that each family needed to make what they believed to be the best decision for their family. Please know that teachers will ensure that the absences from today will not have a negative impact on our students.” 

The campus will remain open tomorrow and police officers will be on the campus throughout the day, the principal said.

Three violent threats have been found on the campus — each making reference to the date of May 9. 

The most current threat was found on the wall of a boy’s restroom on the campus.

It read, “the library will be shot up first, then courtyard, then myself, get ready.”

Police as well as the FBI are working to find the person or persons responsible for the threats.
