Students from San Leandro High School in San Leandro, California and Righetti High School in Santa Maria, California were unable to participate in the nationwide school walkouts to protest gun violence due to lockdowns at their respective schools. No weapons were found. Police say everyone was safe, and students were dismissed at their scheduled time. Sheriff's officials say some students at Righetti saw the threat online and mistakenly believed it was related to their school.

According to a Sheriff's Office release, the text apparently threatened violence during the planned National School Walkout to commemorate the one-month anniversary of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
