School safety is of primary concern.
Westover High's Pep Rally tomorrow is closed to everyone except students and faculty.
And at Monroe High Thursday panic set in when a code yellow was issued.
The principal says it didn't the code yellow didn't last for more than 15 minutes but Students were kept in classrooms and all entrances and exits were monitored as a precaution after school police got some concerning information.
Angela Woods was one of many parents who pulled kids out of Monroe High school early today.
"They made a phone call and said they needed to come home because someone was shooting and they were under code red," said Angela Woods, Parent.
Rumors of a shooting got around, which caused some people to panic.
"It's unfortunate that a lot of the rumors that have been stirring have caused a lot of the parents to be concerned," said Troy Conley, School Police Chief.
School Police Chief Troy Conley says the school was placed under a code yellow today because of some information they got from Albany Police.
"The information provided to us was that there were a group of people the city was looking for and they were armed and they were going to a location there was no specific location but because it was on this side of town we did deem it necessary to go to a code yellow," said Conley.
All entrances and exits were closely monitored and some students were kept in classrooms. The gang task force also came by to make sure everything was safe.
"You will see them a great deal until this matter is resolved," said Conley.
After Sunday's murder of Southside Bloods leader Dontavious Luke, school police are working closely with the gang task force and Albany Police to make sure there's no gang activity on campus.
"Some of the information has been credible on the intel generated regarding the gang activity," said Conley.
Parents will see an increased police presence around schools, and officers promise to look into each piece of information they get.
Believe me, if students were in grave danger, the school would be closed," said Conley.
They will do everything possible to make sure all schools are safe.
"We've had a heightened awareness all week and I'm sure it will be quite some time," said Conley.
If anything were to occur, police say they are ready to handle it.
Albany Police will hold a news conference tomorrow morning to discuss the gang violence
