    A North Bay high school received a second threat of violence in as many weeks, and school officials responded by beefing up security on the campus.

    At Redwood High School in Larkspur, students found graffiti in one of the restrooms saying there would be a shooting at the school Friday. The school immediately called police and notified parents there would be officers on campus all day.

    Principal David Sondheim said the threat is under investigation, and classes will be in session. He addressed the issue in a letter to parents Thursday, saying in part:

    "School will be in session tomorrow on a normal Friday schedule. We will be taking steps tomorrow to make sure all students are safe. Central Marin Police Officers will be on campus all day tomorrow, administrators and campus assistants will be in the hallways all day, and extra personnel from our District Office will be on campus to ensure the safety of all students and staff."

    On Sept. 19, officials evacuated the school after a bomb threat.
