Riverbank Schools Locked Down After Threat Found on Campus

Published

on

RIVERBANK – Two schools were placed on lockdown after a threat was found written on a bathroom wall Friday afternoon.

Deputies with the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office responded to Riverbank High School after a threatening message was found written on the wall of a bathroom stall.

One mother who waited outside for her son to be released from the high school shared a photo that was sent to her through a message from her son. The message read “I’m shooting this school up at lunch Be Ready” with a smiley face drawn below.

The woman said her son was frustrated with the situation, but she understood that authorities had to take it serious.

Several patrol cars were parked in front of and around the school while deputies worked to ensure there was no threat on campus.

Meanwhile down the road at California Avenue Elementary School, dozens of parents stood outside waiting to pick up their children. Deputies were also present at the school, one using a loud speaker to announce which classes were being released in both English and Spanish.

In a social media post authorities said all threats were unfounded, and many of the rumors were circulated by students.

“Please know we are working diligently to investigate any threats and to ensure the safety of our community,” the post said.

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to contact the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office, or Crime Stoppers at (209) 521-4636 where callers can remain anonymous.

First lunar eclipse of the year visible across the valley

Published

on

RIPON – The lunar eclipse takes place only during a full moon when Earth is in between the sun and moon, casting a shadow on the surface of the moon. The bright colored moon which attracts spectators is only seen once every 1.5 years, estimated by NASA.

The lunar eclipse was estimated to begin its deep penumbral stage at 7:15pm on May 15, 2022. By 7:59pm it should have reached the 50% partial stage. Totality began at 8:29pm and the full color everyone was waiting to see occurred at around 9:11pm. That rare sight began to end by 9:54pm. It was 50% partial by 10:23pm and reached its deep penumbral stage by 11:10pm where it ended.

Weather for the total lunar eclipse in some areas caused some to miss out on the rare occurrence. In Ripon and Stockton light cloud coverage crossed the mid stages of the eclipse. Meanwhile in some Modesto areas it was visible. National Weather Service estimated the temperature to be in the mid 60s to upper 70s for the valley.

Although a total lunar eclipse occurs only around every 1.5 years, your next opportunity to see it again will be November 7th 2022 going on to the eighth.
