UPDATE: Rio Linda High Locked Down; Parents Frustrated

RIO LINDA (CBS13) – Rio Linda High was put on lockdown Monday afternon due to a police investigation going on near the school, according to Twin Rivers Police.

Students were ordered to stay inside their classrooms for several hours after the report of a gun on campus. No one has been arrested or detained. Police haven’t confirmed the gun threat.

The lockdown was still in effect as of 5:30 p.m. as frustration among parents grew. Parents were upset that the school didn’t notify them of the incident nor provide any information once parents arrived on campus. Instead, several of them found out of the lockdown when they showed up at the school and received texts or cellphone calls from their children inside.

The school district said there was a glitch in its phone system and that by the time it resent the message of the lockdown, many parents had already arrived at the school.

    As the politicians get crazy….”and they are” the ending result the same will be true with the people who have trusted them to hold our flag high.
    It is called “divide and conquer”

    We need to stay calm….hold your flag high…and trust yourself by helping others.

  • bren

  • Susie

    For the parents, another news source is reporting that parents are being asked to go to the football field. They’re trying to filter the kids out that way.

      It wasn’t bad at all, a bit of traffic, they released the kids in groups by wing after the area was secured. My kid says that the perp got tackled by 3 cops in front of her classroom, in the portables by the practice field, and he gave up that it was ‘in his locker’ where he was headed just as school was letting out. I’m ok with a bit of inconvenience, as long as the kids are safe.

    Better safe than sorry!

    Wouldn’t you rather your kids be safe and the police do their job? Lockdown procedures are in place for a reason and sometimes the students nor the teachers know all the details. The rules for lockdown are to be in a locked facility with all windows and doors locked and closed and they have to stay hunkered down. It sucks but that’s what you have to do even if it’s some ‘brat’ making a threatening comment…I’d rather the authorities error on the side of caution.

    • classic...

      the only thing “lock down” does is allow the perp easy access to a ready pool of victims…congrats you’ve taught your child how to be a sheeple…baaaa!!!

      • Yes

        “sheeple” really???

      • Robert

        Another stupid comment by Classic,during Lock down they lock the classrooms thus meaning lock down..And what is up with your sheep comments,you mentioned sheep in your comment on the Plane Crash the other day.I think you have a sheep fetish…..

      • knowit

        classic….you’re stupid

  • Tina

    Yes it was hectic and confusing, but I’m glad they kept our daughter safe. We never received any calls from the school. I don’t think the ‘glitch’ was fixed. I’m glad they took the threat seriously. (All’s well that ends well)

    • luv myy babe

      my hubby-dubby boyfriend was there i got too admit i was worried for himself!
