School is going ahead as normal on Monday, though Bullinger has said he'll be informing school counselors, mental health providers and the administrative team to be prepared to respond "to any increased needs we see this morning and throughout the day."

"This is a matter we take very seriously, and we are thankful for their involvement and support when any issues arise," he wrote.

"We also know that when there is any real or perceived issue with school violence, it can be disrupting for students and families."
