Estancia High School went into lockdown Friday afternoon when a student's father allegedly brandished a BB gun during a fight with an administrator. He became agitated after employees said he could not take his child because the family has an active restraining order against him, Newport-Mesa Unified School District spokeswoman Laura Boss said. "It's difficult to tell a parent, 'You don't have rights to your child,'" she said. The father began yelling at and pushing an assistant principal, Boss said, and the altercation spilled out of the administrative offices and into the hallway.

A Killybrooke Elementary School student was transferred out Thursday after he was accused of bringing a BB gun to school and then threatening a classmate, according to school officials. “The way we heard about it was from our kids,” said Maureen Mazzarella, whose daughter attends Killybrooke. “My daughter came home from school and said [the child] brought a [BB] gun to school and showed it to other boys.” That happened Jan. 29, Mazzarella said. On Thursday the boy verbally threatened another student and was ordered transferred, school officials said.

Estancia High School Principal Kirk Bauermeister was in his office a few minutes before 1 p.m. Friday, when a student ran by his office yelling there was a gunman. Bauermeister sprinted in the opposite direction of the fleeing student toward the attendance office. He saw staff hiding or pulling students toward cover. "I had no idea what was going on," he said. A few minutes earlier, Michael McHugh, a 35-year-old Costa Mesa man, had tried to remove his daughter from class, police would later assert.

As the only parent from Killybrooke elementary who was quoted for the story (“Boy accused of bringing BB gun is transferred,” Feb. 8), I would like to clarify the timeline of events that had many, many Killybrooke parents upset. On Jan. 29, a student brought a BB gun to school and threatened two kids. On Jan. 30., my daughter faked being sick to avoid this child. He got suspended for three days, and returned to school Feb. 4. It wasn’t until Feb. 5 that the school principal issued an official letter to the parents, informing us of the incident that happened six days earlier.

Re. "BB gun sparks shooting scare at Estancia" Feb. 16: I happened to be at Estancia High School during the recent BB gun incident. While our kids were never in real danger, the recent school shootings made this a sobering experience. As I huddled in a darkened, locked room with school board Trustee Martha Fluor, we worried for the kids, teachers and staff. The halls were quiet and deserted, but soon, thankfully, there was an announcement that all was well and we were safe. What I found out later was that a parent refused access to his child due to a restraining order threatened our assistant principal, Mike Sciacca, with a partially covered gun. Sciacca didn't hesitate in fighting back and restraining him, joined by our principal, Kirk Bauermeister, until police arrived on the scene.

The mother of a student whose father allegedly sparked a lockdown at Estancia High School with a BB gun last month addressed the issue in a letter read to the school board Tuesday night. A family friend submitted the letter to the Newport-Mesa Unified School District. It thanked school administrators for preventing the father from contacting the student. It also alleged he is mentally ill and has violated a restraining order against him before. "I just wanted to let you know how unbelievably proud I am of the heroic actions of [Assistant]

NEWPORT BEACH Residents pass Measure B; project starts around 2009 Measure B, which requires the next Newport Beach City Hall to be built next to the central library on Avocado Avenue prevailed Tuesday with 52.8% of the vote. Mayor Ed Selich estimated it would take at least until the summer of 2009 before the city could get the proper environmental and traffic studies completed and break ground on the project. With an estimated two years for construction, a new city hall might not be open for business until 2011, he said.

Michael Miller One girl was transferred and another suspended from Ensign Intermediate School last week after police found them in possession of a replica gun near school grounds. Sgt. Steve Shulman said police were still not sure if the girls had brought the object into the school, or if they had brandished it in front of other students. On March 8, a parent contacted the police relaying a report from a student that the girls had brought the item on campus, and police located the girls on Coral Place and Irvine Avenue, near the school, shortly before 5 p.m. Once confronted by police, the girls admitted to carrying the fake gun, which one had brought from home and the other concealed in her backpack.

According to reports, on Feb. 15, the father of an Estancia High School student went to the administration office and asked to take his daughter off campus. A check of school records determined there was a restraining order in place prohibiting the father from taking his daughter from the campus, so he was refused permission to remove her. The father became irate and told the staff he had a gun, and apparently produced what turned out to be a replica gun, which he pointed at Assistant Principal Mike Sciacca and, according to reports from the scene, then issued a death threat.
