With rain falling parents wait to check their students out of Righetti High School in Orcutt after a lockdown on Wednesday

A Jersey Shore high school spent part of Wednesday morning on lockdown as police investigated a weapons threat on the campus.

All schools in the Atascadero Unified School District were locked down after the threat, and a planned walkout protest was canceled after students were asked to shelter in place, reported The Tribune.

The disturbing discovery comes one the heels of #NationalWalkoutDay, in which thousands of students across the country walked out of their classroom to speak out to lawmakers in support of more effective gun control laws. We also brought in some K-9's to search the hallways, and do a very comprehensive search the best we can to ensure the safety of the school, students and staff. San Leandro police issued a community message shortly before 11:10 a.m. Police swept the campus but did not find any guns. "We chose to work with the school and clear the grounds today - just as a precaution", said Lt. Benabou.

An assortment of law enforcement officers converged upon Righetti HIgh School in Orcutt as the campus was placed on lockdown due to reported threat on Wednesday

Police say that all students and faculty are safe. However, authorities say those rumors were not true, and there were no guns found on campus.

The lockdown was lifted at around noon and officials said the school would be closed on Thursday.
