San Ramon Valley High School briefly placed on lockdown Thursday

Report of student with a weapon unfounded and lockdown lifted

San Ramon Valley High School was briefly placed on lockdown Thursday afternoon, after a student reported information that another student may have been in possession of a gun, information that was later proven to be unfounded.

The school was placed on lockdown at 12:50 p.m. for approximately 40 minutes, during which time Danville police quickly detained the suspected student but found no weapon and the lockdown was lifted, according to town of Danville officials.

“We want to thank Danville Police for their quick response, as well as the student for coming forward and reporting the information. We take all reports involving the safety of our campus very seriously and act immediately,” SRVHS principal Jason Krolikowski said in an email to parents. “At San Ramon Valley High School we are committed to the safety of our students, staff and parents.”

Krolikowski also took the time to remind the community of the school district’s “see something, or know something, say something” policy.

“Taking the time to report a potential threat is a vital first step to preventing a possible tragedy,” Danville Police Chief Allan Shields added, commending the bravery of the student who reported the information. “The best advice we can continue to give our community in this regard is, ‘If you see something, say something.’”

SRVHS, along with all other schools in the San Ramon Valley Unified school District, provide an anonymous tip line on their school website for students or other community members to report on a potentially dangerous situation or individual.

Residents can also send tips to the Danville Police Department via the Nixle tipline by texting “DANPD” and their tip to 888-777.

I'm skeptical that this is all there is to this story. This suspect was handcuffed and lead away by the police. It wouldn't be the first time the school has covered up something major and dangerous.

This is not the whole story. Why would kids be handcuffed and dragged away if nothing was found? It is always disappointing when the kids who are in class know more then the total story a week later.
