LARKSPUR, Calif. - (Daniel Radovich and Keith Crook/KTVU) There will be an increased police presence at Redwood High School in Larkspur on Halloween Day after another threat – this time in reference to a shooting – was found on Monday, police said.
This is at least the third time the school has received threats this fall.
Central Marin Police Cprl. Jenna McVeigh said the threat – written on a tile- was found in a bathroom by a student in the morning. The words said something to the effect of “there will be a shooting at school tomorrow,” McVeigh said. “This is not a joke.”
The student told school administrators, who then told police.
This is not the first time there have been threats made to this school this year. In September, a 17-year-old senior from Tiburon was arrested in connection with making a bomb threat, according to the Marin Independent Journal. The bomb threat was made on Sept. 18 and there was a separate shooting threat that also involved scrawled graffiti made on Sept. 28.
Redwood High has implemented a no costume policy on Tuesday. "We feel bad about it," Principal David Sondheim told KTVU Tuesday morning. "But we want to recognize everybody...Hopefully it will be fun tonight even though it won't be as fun today."
